The Cost of Consensus

The ability of Americans to sit through and listen to the obvious for several days is awesome to behold, but they consider it a worthwhile price to pay for the testing and creation of consensus.

Odin W. Anderson, The Uneasy Equilibrium: Private and Public Financing of Health Services in the United States, 1875-1965 124 (College & University Press 1968).

There is value in listening and in patience, but we should also remember the importance of efficiency as it pertains to the necessary component of action. See supra here. Consensus probably is required, however, before meaningful action is an option.
