Step Four Writers
1969end to interest group liberalism as not true populist democracy and it assumes all values negotiable...plans without standards.. lack of democratic forms...privilege in implementationLowi
1971social equity guides new public administration..work to redress the deprived minorities; focus upon processes of distribution, integration, boundary spanning and socio-emotional commitmentsFrederickson
1972organizations evaluating selves lead to change, not status quo, Evaluation, Inc. to identify social needs, do policy as advocacy, join knowledge with power, be skeptical rather than committed.Wildavsky
1967"new professional role of analyst; systems plus political science, psychology, maturity, idealistic realism to make somewhat better decisions in public policy making"Dror
1969"rescuing analysis from PBBS formula; domestic goals not easy, budgeting not stated operationally, no impact of expected results, not for mass implementation in all federal government"Wildavsky
1976sinful policy analysis is being in a rut, too far away, late for process, superficial, topical, change for sake of changing and not able to stand political tests in implementation. Meltsner
Step Five Writers
1978"Growth is a common denominator that links contemporary management theory to its historical antecedents and practices with public policy choices....decline forces the logic for rationally structured organization on its end and upside down. " See problem depletion, organizational atrophy, political vulnerability and environmental entrophy. Compare with Downs "mature" bureau and terminating discussions, especially Levine's tactics to smooth or resist decline. Levine
1980Public service employees such as teachers, police, social workers, public lawyers and health workers are imporatnt as street level bureaucrats because their activities define the scope and function of public services delievered and have direct impact on peoples lives.Lipsky
1981Classic budget depends upon stability derived from accurate prediction of revenues and costs and knowledge of future output. It works best where yearly adjustments are marginal. Yet, contemporary uncertainties arise from novelty, forecasting, the annual perspective, centralized bureaucratic control, size, erosion of accountability and reflect the larger American crisis. See Meltzner and Wildavsky discussions. Caiden
1987Public administrators resist the privatisation challenge because they cannot define its limits or the distinctiveness of the public sector. This ambiguity challenges the public assertion behind the TVA and FADA as "distinctive sovereign." See the Allison, Lilenthal and Lowi discussions. Moe
Intergovernmental relations can be viewed conflict (before 1930), cooperative, concentrated, creative, competitive, calculative(70-80's) and contractive(80-90's). Another way to reconsider the meanings of constitutional-legal and resource expansion,/contraction. Compare with Grodzins and Mosher.Wright
