You can’t accuse John Kitzhaber of thinking small. After seven years of tilting at the windmills of our hopelessly inefficient national health care system, he is running for governor on a platform of transformational change. The theme of systemic transformation has permeated his public speeches since his last stint as governor, and it is also the central idea behind his economic strategy for Oregon, which he presented to the public yesterday at the Portland offices of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
I’ve always been impressed by Kitzhaber’s intellectual capacity. He is clearly capable of understanding incredibly complex systems at a level of depth few can match. His work on health care has been visionary. But is he capable of actually making the changes he’s calling for? And do we really need these changes? Is the huge, systemic transformational change he’s calling for on multiple fronts the solution to Oregon’s economic woes?
