9780521673945: Think Tanks, Public Policy, and the Politics of Expertise

Think tanks are nonprofit policy research organizations that provide analysis and expertise to influence policymakers. From the 1970s their number exploded in the U.S. and their proliferation represented a hope that lawmaking might become better informed and more effective as a result of these expert contributions. Instead, as this book documents, the known ideologies of many, especially the newer, think tanks currently contribute to an environment in which they differ little from advocacy organizations, promoting points of view and preordained policy prescriptions. As a result, they fail to achieve desired influence and undermine their credibility.

Book Description :

Think tanks are nonprofit policy research organizations that produce and promote analysis and expertise in order to be influential with policymakers. Beginning in the 1970s, their number exploded in the United States. The proliferation of think tanks represented a hope that lawmaking, in fact, might become better informed and more reasoned as a result of their expert contributions. Instead, as this book documents, the known ideologies of many, especially newer, think tanks contributes to an environment in which they are often little different from advocacy organizations, promoting points of view and preordained policy prescriptions. As a result, these organizations fail to achieve the substantive influence that they might, and their behavior has helped undermine the credibility with which experts and expertise are generally viewed by policymakers.

About the Author :

Andrew Rich is an assistant professor of political science at City College of New York. He received his Ph.D. in political science from Yale University. Professor Rich taught at Wake Forest University from 1999 to 2003.

Description du livre CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.While the number of think tanks active in American politics has more than quadrupled since the 1970s, their influence has not expanded proportionally. Instead, the known ideological proclivities of many, especially newer think tanks with their aggressive efforts to obtain high profiles, have come to undermine the credibility with which experts and expertise are generally viewed by public officials. This book explains this paradox. The analysis is based on 135 in-depth interviews with officials at think tanks and those in the policy making and funding organizations that draw upon and support their work. The book reports on results from a survey of congressional staff and journalists and detailed case studies of the role of experts in health care and telecommunications reform debates in the 1990s and tax reduction in 2001.
