The authors of this primer think that the present method of federal rules urgently wishes fix. not just are present charges mandated by way of law huge, yet a considerable percentage of these bills is useless. for that reason, extra clever guidelines may well in achieving an identical social targets at less expense or extra bold ambitions on the comparable expense.

One is the Goal Programming technique developed by Professors Lee and Shim at Nebraska, and the other is called "P/G%" software, developed by Professor Nagel at the University of Illinois. Finally, "scenario" techniques must come into play in these kinds of modeling. ) Computer models are especially useful for public policy making because they are capable of reducing the costs involved in modeling, especially reducing time requirements. Because the costs of computing have declined drastically in recent years, and because of the increases in capabilities of personal computer systems, small microcomputers are presently capable of performing hundreds of complex comparisons using complex mathematical formulas, and they can do so quickly and at low cost.
