Controlling Bureaucracies: Crash Course Government and Politics #17

In which Craig Benzine tells you how we keep bureaucracy in check. So we’ve spent the last few episodes telling you all about what bureaucracies are and why they are formed. And throughout we’ve hinted about this ever-expanding power within the executive branch. So today, we’re going to finish our discussion of bureaucracy by looking at methods the other branches of government use to manage this power. From watch-dog organizations to reporting requirements there has been quite a bit of legislation passed aimed at taming the bureaucracy.
