    Each member of a society must agree, in the abstract, to accept specific decisions we may not agree with. Through their Analysing public policy book experiences in particular policy areas, the experiences of elected and appointed officials become key policy artifacts. Democratic politics operates on a much more egalitarian basis: each person gets only one vote, so that in the ballot box, at least, the poor person and the rich person have the same power. This model, however, has been criticized for being overly linear and simplistic. For example, if homeless people are using illegal drugs such as heroin in a city park, some stakeholders may define this as a law enforcement issue which, in their view, could be best solved if police presence in the park is stepped up and if the individuals using illegal drugs are arrested and punished ; on the other hand, other stakeholders may view this as a poverty and public health issue which, in their view, could be best solved if public health nurses and government medical doctors and substance abuse counsellors were sent to the park to do outreach with the drug-using individuals, and encourage them to voluntarily enter " detoxification " or rehabilitation programs.

    Efficiency policies often seem in conflict with equity policies; institutional reforms may seem to serve neither efficiency nor equity very well. After reviewing Analysing public policy book recent attempts at synthesis, he advocates an evolutionary approach which is best able to account for the importance of ideas and interests in the policy process. Suppose we lived in a small extended family group, or clan, of hunter-gatherers. These groups may have little use for "experts" or "evidence. As we will see later in this book, the particular "institutions" of choice, given public opinion, make a big difference. Policy-makers are too short on time, resources, and brains to make totally new policies; as such, past policies are accepted as having some legitimacy.

    After the policy has been in place for a year or several years, civil servants or an independent consulting firm assesses the Analysing public policy book, to see if the goals were achieved, if the policy was implemented effectively, etc. The unchanging will of all the members of the state is the general will; through it they are citizens and free. In a larger sense, since markets are the engines of growth in capitalist economies, but politics is the process by which property rights, tax rates, and social programs are decided, this conflict may be the most fundamental of all. The strategic effects dimensions can pose certain limitations due to data collection. This integrates what are usually separate bodies of evaluation on the role of gender in welfare state developments, employment transformations, workplace policies, and work experience. Different policies seem to be contradictory, but that is because they resulted from different conflicts.
