Shared Powers, Policy Drifts, and Sustainability
This chapter draws out some lessons from the analysis presented in the book. It discusses the implications of shared powers jockeying over public policy for drifts and their outcomes. It illustrates that policy drifts are a rational, coherent part of the dynamics of public policy making. Political uncertainty does not cease once policies drift. A new stimulus for change will arouse interests from relevant stakeholders and new policy drifts will ensue. To the extent that there are no social, political, economic, or ideological forces pushing for change, the most recent drift remains in place. In this sense, some policy drifts may remain more durable than others.
