THE ART OF POLITICAL DECISION MAKING

POLICY PARADOX

The attached document is Chapter 1 of Deborah Stone’s book, POLICY PARADOX: THE ART OF POLITICAL DECISION MAKING (this is one of the most well-known books on public policy, or the action or output of government).  The attached chapter describes the difference between the “Market Model” and the “Polis Model” within our society. This description describes fundamental elements of human behavior that Stone assumes are a given in our society, and contrasts them with axioms of the conventional Market Model. What do you make of Stone’s “Polis Model” and how would you describe the “Polis Model” for someone who has not read Stone’s text before?  How does Stone’s model help you to better understand some aspect of our course material (in other words, our course text or a discussion posting assignment) you have encountered in our class this semester (please include specific citations to the course material here)?  How does the concept of the “Polis Model” help you better understand a specific contemporary political figure (either an individual serving in some sort of capacity within the executive, legislative, or judicial branches) or an American institution of government itself (the Presidency, Congress, the Judiciary, etc.)?

Your essay must be between 4-6 pages in length, be double-spaced with standard (1-inch) margins and 12-point Times New Roman font.  Your essay will be graded on a scale of 0-100.
