Abstract

Much has been written about the Everglades1 over the years but little analysis of “the game within the game” has been provided – what we don’t see or don’t want to even hear about. We seldom learn about how the Everglades Restoration or most other human endeavors of sizeable consequence have been managed, or mismanaged. Once a policy decision is made, we tend to move on to the next issue or problem even if the policy is proven to have failed.
