The answer is not necessarily more governance, or less governance...it is Better governance. And it's not just government for which exponential growth can be equated to cancer - our entire economic system, including both public and private domain is based on this phenomenon.

As for the cost of salaries, one of the biggest societal factors is the escalating cost of leadership, and dearth of those skills throughout the population. Why would a rational person hold themselves accountable to such scrutiny (including that of groups like the HCL) in the public sector, when they can be compensated far more highly for their skills in the private sector? The result is that the most capable leaders end up with private businesses, and we, the public end up having to make do with those not as dynamic or capable of rising up to the level of our ambitions.
