Example text

34 Carrots, Sticks, and Sermons Yet, information is also different from economic policy instruments in that no handing out or taking away of material resources is involved. The information diffused may very well include arguments to the effect that addressees will actually benefit materially from taking the measures recommended. However, government neither materially rewards people who take the action, nor materially deprives people who do not do anything. The only thing offered are data, facts, knowledge, arguments, and moral appeals.

In the second instance, the governee is not obligated to perform an action, but the governor may make action easier or more difficult by adduction or deprivation of material resources. Thirdly, the relationship may be persuasive, to wit, involving only the communication of claims and reasons but neither material resources nor obligatory directives. These three relationships are the defining properties of the classes of regulatory, economic, and informative policy instruments.

Organization is necessary for the provision of regulatory, economic, and exhortatory policy instruments. Policy instruments cannot be applied if there is no government organization or government mercenary to do the job. The view taken here, however, is that organization is a prerequisite for the application of policy instruments, not a policy instrument in itself. In the present context I prefer to regard organization as an important public governance strategy, not a policy instrument in the narrow sense.
