About this product
- DescriptionThe Half-Life of Policy Rationales argues that the appropriateness of policy depends on the state of techlogy, and that the justifications for many public policies are dissolving as techlogy advances. As new detection and metering techlogies are being developed for highways, parking, and auto emissions, and information becomes more accessible and user-friendly, this volume argues that quality and safety are better handled by the private sector. As for public utilities, new means of producing and delivering electricity, water, postal, and telephone services dissolve the old natural-mopolies rationales of the government. This volume includes essays on marine resources, lighthouses, highways, parking, auto emissions, consumer product safety, money and banking, medical licensing, electricity, water delivery, postal service, community governance, and endangered species. The editors have mobilized the hands-on kwledge of field experts to develop theories about techlogy and public policy. The Half-Life of Policy Rationales will be of interest to readers in public policy, techlogy, property rights, and ecomics.
