The Bureaucracy and the American Dream The relationship between bureaucracy and the government is that it posted a lot of challenges since its inception (Warner). Bureaucracies are very relevant because they are the working machinery of the government (Lazo). Embodied with different functions, they are supposed to carry out their responsibilities effectively and efficiently.
