CHAPTER 14 : PUBLIC POLICY

14.0 Introduction

In the modern world, a democratic nation is faced with varied problems that it needs to solve. It has to make decisions and positive efforts in order to plan and control results. This process is referred to as policymaking: all government agencies and officers are involved in this. Any governmental activity involves a policy element, that is, making decisions about what is to be done. It also involves an administrative element, that is, the actions by which the decisions can be put into practice. Thus government can regulate industry and business, protect its citizens, help the state and city governments, and provide for the poor, through its public policies. Some policies find expression in statutes, while others are made and administered in the absence of them.
