Summary
  • "This book is divided into (1) domestic policy problems, including poverty, minorities, and environmental protection; (2) international policy problems, including the promotion of world democracy, prosperity, and peace; and (3) institution building in developmental policy studies, including policy-making institutions, policy administration, and policy analysis institutions."
  • "The underlying theme is that national development can be achieved on all these dimensions in a way that is both (1) high on benefits or highly effective; and (2) low on costs or highly efficient. Both benefits and costs include non-monetary consequences that relate to civil liberties, work satisfaction, clean environment, healthy population, educated people, relatively low crime, and other such consequences."
  • "For example, a key aspect of poverty is not having a job. Public policy can facilitate job-getting by commissioning job finders who get paid a commission only after the unemployed person has been in the job for four months. This kind of incentive payment system can be effective in reducing unemployment (including displaced workers) while, at the same time, being efficient in saving the costs of public aid and anti-social behavior."--Jacket
