The Policy Sciences and Problem-Solving
Benson, Oliver
Social Science Quarterly, 52, 1, 157-169, Jun 71
Concern with the complexity of social problems and of public policy designed to cope with them has led to the identification of an interdisciplinary focus called the policy sciences. The concept includes both governmental and non-governmental decisions. The social sciences have provided structure with new methods such as operations research, systems analysis, simulation, game theory, and programmed budgeting. (Author/SE)
