9780521525602: The Politics of Quasi-Government: Hybrid Organizations and the Dynamics of Bureaucratic Control (Theories of Institutional Design)

Promising increased efficiency and superior service, the quasi-government has grown as governmental functions have been delegated to new entities combining characteristics of public- and private-sector organizations. Jonathan Koppell argues that control of public policy is sacrificed when public policy is carried out by such hybrid organizations. Although they may be designed to limit the loss of public control, Koppell suggests that quasi-government should be limited to tasks that are not of critical importance to policy-makers.

About the Author:

Jonathan G. S. Koppell is Assistant Professor of Politics, Policy and Organization at the Yale School of Management, Yale University.

Review:

"Koppell's study of the quasi-governmental organizations brings a novel and needed perspective to the problem of bureaucratic control--one central to political science and administration. Comparing hybrid organizations such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac with traditional government agencies, he highlights the importance of specific aspects of organizational structure that allow elected officials to control bureaucracies. This work provides important ground work for further study of the proliferating range of public-private organizational arrangements." Todd R. La Porte, University of California, Berkeley

"The book contains an impressive analysis of current and classic literature and includes extensive background information on the agencies. Highly recommended." Choice

"A welcome addition to the growing literature on the government's increasing delegation of public responsibilities to organizations outside of the formal government structure." Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Hybrid organizations, governmental entities that mix characteristics of private and public sector organizations, are increasingly popular mechanisms for implementing public policy. Koppell assesses the performance of the growing quasi-government in terms of accountability and control. Comparing hybrids to traditional government agencies in three policy domains - export promotion, housing and international development - Koppell argues that hybrid organizations are more difficult to control largely due to the fact that hybrids behave like regulated organizations rather than extensions of administrative agencies. Providing a rich conception of the bureaucratic control problem, Koppell also argues that hybrid organizations are intrinsically less responsive to the political preferences of their political masters and suggests that as policy tools they are inappropriate for some tasks. This book provides a timely study of an important administrative and political phenomenon. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521525602
