Public Policy and Direct Democracy
This 5 page report discusses the following statement: “Direct democracy is a poor mechanism for making sound public policy and should be reformed or eliminated.” The author argues that although direct democracy is considered a poor mechanism for creating meaningful and effective public policy, it does have its merits. In the context of policy-making, the process becomes more difficult when it is based on the processes of direct democracy. Nonetheless, there are still positive aspects of direct democracy and should not simply be dismissed. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
