The power of ideas and the ideas of power @Medici_Manager @muirgray @HarvardHSPH

“It would be naive to assume that decision-makers always base their decisions on objective evidence about the best means to achieve the desired ends. Often, such evidence is not available. Even when it is, the decision-maker, particularly in the public sector, must balance off the weight of evidence against the economic and political feasibility of following the desired course of action. While it is clear that decisions are made on the basis of many other forces apart from scientific information, it is also true that good evidence can steer those who have the power to decide into a better course of action. In other words, the power of ideas can help to shape the ideas of power.”
