The Concepts of Equality & Social Equity

Credit: theinclusionsolution.me

H. George Frederickson, expert in the field of public administration, coined the term “social equity,” which urges public administrators not to view individuals within one environment as the same but instead to view them against a backdrop of social and economic factors before assuming equality.

Ideals of equality and social justice form the basis of political philosophy. However, enforcing principles of equality across society often infringes on the liberal concept of social justice. Tensions within social and political relations have led to the creation of international government and non government organizations that seek to maintain ethical standards of equality throughout the world. These ethical standards allow reasonable individuals to maintain their philosophical differences without jeopardizing the greater good of global society. Continue reading

Impact of Media on Public Policy Debate

There are more media choices available today to ordinary citizens than ever before. In fact, in the United States and in many other nations, citizens are dramatically decreasing the amount of time spent consuming news through traditional media, such as nightly news broadcasts and daily newspapers. Instead, citizens are dramatically increasing the amount of time spent on a vast array of alternative news resources. Therefore, media outlets—whether on television, in print, or on the Internet—need to digest often-complex policy issues into small snippets that can be understood and communicated in a short amount of time.

The Legislative Branch in Action

Credit: slideshare.net

The senators and representatives who make up the legislative branch each have different agendas, priorities, and policy initiatives that they wish to usher through the public policy process. It is clearly not easy for any one member of Congress to have laws enacted to suit all of his or her policy priorities. In fact, very few bills proposed in either the House or the Senate ever become law. This week’s Learning resources help explain just why a fraction of these proposed bills are actually enacted. Therefore, the prioritization of public policy is an extremely important part of the inner workings of the legislative branch.

The process by which those priorities are organized is often the result of compromise, conflict, and outside pressure both from the president and rulings from the federal courts. Continue reading

Women’s Reproductive Rights

Reproductive rights remain a controversial issue, not only in the United States, but in many countries around the world. Although formal laws address this issue at the federal and state levels, it would be shortsighted to view this conversation as occurring only within the hallways of government. In fact, perhaps no issue has galvanized more stakeholders in recent times than reproductive rights. Institutions, religious groups, grassroots organizations, women’s rights organizations, and international bodies such as the United Nations have weighed in on reproductive rights around the world.

Balanced Federal Budgets

Economists differ in their ideas about using government spending to stimulate the economy. Some economists follow British political-economist John Maynard Keynes in advocating increased government expenditure to stimulate the economy when it is in recession. In their view, the federal deficit will decline when the economy improves. Others favor allowing market forces to restore equilibrium when the economy is in recession. They believe that the deficit stifles economic growth and prosperity. Continue reading
