————————————————————————————-

Short-term considerations and a focus primarily on economic factors and returns dominate public policy-making. This carries major consequences for the potential misallocation of society’s resources. But it also leaves a deficit in terms of transparency and accountability. This seminar will look into the consequences for policy-making of taking a broader view of value, which considers social, economic and environmental factors with equal weight and across the longer-term. What are the barriers to policy-makers adopting such an approach and can these be overcome?
