It argues instead that what analysts really do is produce policy arguments that are based on value judgments and are used by policymakers in the course of public debate. Giandomenico Majone shows that the essential need today is not to develop objective measures of outcomes but rather to improve the methods and conditions of public discourse at all levels and stages of policy making.
