The Fiscal Sociology of Public Consultation

The Fiscal Sociology of Public Consultation

(p.102) Chapter 6 The Fiscal Sociology of Public Consultation
Democratizing Inequalities

Isaac William Martin

NYU Press

This chapter examines what it calls “new deliberative assemblies” carried out by state-level government agencies from the perspective of fiscal sociology. In particular, it conceptualizes the new deliberative assemblies as a form of consultation between states and citizens by focusing on the case of California in the late twentieth century. After discussing the paradox of participation, the chapter considers the fiscal sociology of consultation. It then describes anticipatory consultation and innovative forms of consultation and goes on to explore the impact of fiscal bargains struck in the Progressive Era on the evolution of consultation in California and New York. It also looks at the Great Consultation and the fiscal theory of democratization and concludes by assessing the implications of new deliberative assemblies for public participation.
