Part 1: Terms
Efficiency: Efficiency is a term that refers to the measuring of how well a public policy really works. Efficiency takes into consideration several factors such as cost, results, impact, feedback and puts it all together to measure the overall success of a public policy under an efficient point of view. While it is true that efficiency more often than not is represented by a ratio between results and costs, it could be argued that other factors play a role in it. Ultimately, high efficiency is very hard to achieve even when measuring some of the best policies, but what is even harder is determining a cost for a specific policy. Therefore, efficiency is often measured by analyzing procedural efficiency instead which compares what is produced to its cost.
Implementation: Implementation is a term that refers to putting public policies into effect in order to achieve goals set for those policies. However, in reality implementation is hard to achieve as there are so many different ways to stop a public policy from being adopted or carried out. In fact, one thing is to have a public policy approved by law, but even then its implementation is not guaranteed which means administrators who have their public policies implemented should consider themselves lucky. An example of implementation would be the actual actions required to get a public policy started, whatever those may be. Coming up with public programs is one thing, but its implementation is what makes the program/policy work and have any impact on society.
Iron Triangle: Iron Triangle is an expression used to define the interaction between public and private sectors in the United States in the absence of corruption. This term has been used to identify a symbiotic relationship among interest groups, committees, subcommittees and administrative agencies involved in…...

...QUESTION #1: Incident 1 – “An Ethical Flaw” (pg. 40) Question 2-11: From an ethical standpoint, how would you evaluate the merits of Mr. Garbo’s employing Amber? Discuss. Answer 2-11: I definitely think that the decision to hire Amber was extremely unethical. I don’t think that it was right for Mr. Garbo to pressure Mr. Davis into hiring his daughter when she didn’t show the motivation to attempt to find a job on her own. I understand that sometimes having “connections” is helpful, but when you don’t show that you’re worthy of the positon, you shouldn’t hire someone in just because you think that it will help you out professionally in the future. If Amber had shown that she was competent, able, eager and mature then it would be obvious that she may be suitable for the position. However, Amber did not possess these characteristics so Mr. Garbo’s decision was based solely on his business relationship with Mr. Davis. It is usually a bad idea to employ a friend or coworker’s son or daughter due to this fact. Just because they are a good worker, doesn’t mean that their kids will be too. (pg. 27) Question 2-12: Now that she is employed, what course would you follow to address her on-the-job behavior? Answer 2-12: I definitely think that Mr. Garbo should have a serious talk with Amber and try to help and encourage her to become a better and more productive member of their team. He should also let her know that is she doesn’t become more productive then she...
