Thoughts on Public Policy Design & Evaluation

About the Author

Feldsmarch is written by William D. Walker. I am an economist and lawyer by training.1

Since the year 2000, I have worked in government as a policy and budget analyst (advising three governors), senior policy advisor (working on land use, energy, and climate change), agency budget director, and regulatory economist.

Economics, law, budgeting, policy, regulation — these are all variations on the theme of organizational design.
