An essay is presented that identifies and discusses the two problems in public administration during war, terrorism, and economic calamity. The two problems are the failure to acknowledge public administration as an arbiter in the conflict of politics and as a discipline that shapes social affairs and its lack of capability to address issues. The authors discuss their argument on the Minnowbrook II conference and the failure of public administration to address administrative issues.
