Epilogue: The Silent Virtues
This chapter examines the relationship between rules and the allocation of power. It suggests that the use of rules as devices for the allocation of power is less effective in determining the cases of a decision maker’s agenda than in determining at the outset what is on the agenda. It argues that rules serve an agenda-simplifying or desk-clearing function and take much off the agenda so that what remains can be dealt with with the care and detail deserved.
