Public Policy Resources

Peter Knoepfel

Policy Press

This chapter returns to and explores the resource model in detail. It defines ten public action resources: Force, Law, Personnel, Money, Property, Information, Organization, Consensus, Time, Political Support. It also introduces a new resource-related definition of public action resources (based on the so-called institutional regimes for natural, manufactured, social and human resources as defined by the World Bank) and developed by the author and his colleagues. Finally, it also presents a new definition of the multiple functions of law (covering both institutions and specific public action resources).

Keywords:   typology, public action resources, resource-related, institutional resource regimes, rival uses, scarcity, rule of law in public policies
