Jack Pinkowski, Ph.D., associate professor and Chair of Public Administration at the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business & Entrepreneurship published an opinion piece in the Huffington Post and the Sun Sentinel in which he discusses the our system of checks and balances and puts the recent government shutdown into perspective.

“I don’t believe that the Founding Fathers ever imagined that statesman would behave in such an unstatesmanlike manner as to risk default on government debt, penalizing federal workers, or those in the military, with job suspensions and related pay suspensions,” said Pinkowski.
