(p.168) 10 Conclusion
Public Policy Investment

Anthony M. Bertelli

Peter John

Oxford University Press

The concluding chapter revisits the construction and empirical assessment of the theory of public policy investment in a synthetic manner. It revisits notions of statecraft and conditional representation that lie at the heart of the argument and analysis in this book. Discussions of the implications of this analysis for coalition government in Britain as well as in other political systems, where a unitary policy investor is not present and more difficult collective choices govern the operation of the public policy investment mechanism, extend the reach of our argument. The chapter helps to situate the contribution of the book into comparative politics and public policy scholarship and suggests a variety of future research topics in these areas.
