Understanding Public Policy (in 1000 and 500 words)

Policy in 500 Words: bounded rationality (ambiguity, power and knowledge, narrative, and social construction)


The third of a series of podcasts tying together multiple 500 Words posts. They’ll sound a bit different from the 1000 Words podcasts because I recorded them in front of our MPP students.

This brief lecture describes bounded rationality and its implications for power/ knowledge, the NPF and SCPD

Relevant posts:

Policy in 500 words: uncertainty versus ambiguity
