Content: Policies and Policymaking
Pages 40

In this chapter we focus on the relationships between policy content and the policymaking process. In chapters 17 through 19 we outlined the Where of policy levels and sectors. Policy is made at national, state, local, and neighborhood levels by government, market, civil, and private institutions. Although the technologies may be roughly the same, making policy for your local homeowners association differs from making policy in Congress. And the involvement of government bureaucrats, commercial contractors, faith-based organizations, or private volunteers also matters.
