This is an advanced level textbook for third year students studying courses in public policy and public administration. It approaches the subject with plenty of material on how to do policy analysis, illustrating the mechanisms available for choosing policy. Conceptual foundations are described before students are introduced to possible conflicts between markets, democratic representatives and experts.

This readable and comprehensive introduction to the principles of public-policy analysis is the first book to integrate the tools students need to analyze policies with the common sense they need to understand how real policies are made.


Part 1 Policy happens when we decide to decide: an overview of policy analysis as a profession and a process; deciding how to decide - "experts", "the people", and "the market". Part 2 Why is policy analysis important?: a benchmark for performance - what is a "market"; case study 1 - a simple exchange economy; evaluation and "market failure" - criteria for intervention; experts and "advocacy" - the limits of policy analysis; democracy and "government failure" - the limits of choice by the people; case study 2 - a simple command polity. Part 3 How is policy analysis conducted?: the welfare economics paradigm - introduction to analytics; choice of regulatory form - efficiency, equity, or politics?; case study 3 social security crisis. Part 4 Cost-benefit analysis; discounting 1 - probability, expected values and risk; discounting 2 - time; cost-benefit analysis.
