“Uttering the words “public administration” usually puts people into an instant stupor, or else sends them scrambling to check for messages on their iPhones. But in fact, the biggest problems we face in contemporary governance are often not related to what the government should do, but rather how to actually get the existing machinery to implement a policy that everyone can agree upon.”

    Mr. Fukuyama has a valid point. There is no point in creating policies that are not easily implementable. It is very important to know how a program will be administered before a program can be introduced or suggested to the public. If one considers implementation while constructing policy, it is very likely that policies will be rendered successful in the end. Otherwise, policies are nice in theory, but in reality impractical.

  2. Jon Castro says:

    I think in the past few years policy has been under attack as to halt its implementation through public administration. Certainly when it comes to Obama Care there are some who would have liked to stop its implementation by a change of leadership in the Executive Branch. Even as we speak the ability for the US Gov to implement policy succesfully is under scrutiny with all the resent scandals. States seem to have more stability in there political allingment to get things accomplished vs the Federal Gov.

    Public policies are usually made based on studies that are approved for the advantage of most of the public and their country.
    On the other hand, public administration is very important to implement those policies.
    What is the point of a policy if it is not implemented?.
    It is just like if there was no policy.
