1. Quickly describe the problem again, in no more than 100 words.
Governments are made up of a small proportion of wealthy people who have sufficient res... [Show More] ources to influence policies and decisions to achieve their personal desired outcomes. Therefore, those who influence politics and decision-making are usually the same type of people, wealthy upper-class citizens. Many senior citizens who influence policy and implementation share similar ideas and ideologies. This can also be an issue when changing policies. Upper-class citizens want to remain wealthy and in power, so middle and lower-class citizens design and develop policies that benefit wealthy and powerful people while addressing their implications. This concept is very common in low-income areas and can lead to poor environmental quality. For example, wealthy communities advocate waste reduction, energy conservation, and water conservation so that the environment can strive, prosper and improve its quality of life. Waste reduction, energy conservation, and water conservation play a major role in low quality of life in low-income communities. Cultural diversity and lack of idealism make it difficult for everyone to influence policy and implementation.
2. Explain in detail whether any of the new frameworks/theories that we have covered since assignment #1 is a better tool to study your problem than the framework/theory you had originally picked, Make sure to describe in detail what makes the theory/framework better in your opinion. If you don't think any of the new theories or frameworks is better than your original choice, explain why not (.e. explain what the original theory/framework has that the others don't).
Strategic plan, economic growth, socio-cultural growth, equality, social equity, and any other policy that is recognized by government legislation are all examples of public policy. This policy framework is better compared to the better tool to study the problem than the Policy Feedback Framework that I choose previously. [Show Less]
