GSBGEN 307: Policy Time

Policy Time is about the policy choices faced by senior elected officials, especially in times of crisis. Policy choices in the ongoing coronavirus crisis will be a principal focus. Our main perspective is American and executive: decisions faced by the U.S. President, Governors, and their advisors, but the lessons can extend to certain international settings as well. We have three main goals (1) building your personal policy approach, in which you will figure out how your own values translate into real-world policy choices; (2) learning what it's like to be a senior policymaker through Q&A sessions with them; and (3) learning about crisis management and leadership in government and policy. One session per week will be either a lecture and discussion of a particular policy issue, or a conversation and Q&A with a past or current senior policymaker. The second session each week will be a small group meeting (6-8 students per group) to discuss policy choices and the lessons presented by th more »

The second session each week will be a small group meeting (6-8 students per group) to discuss policy choices and the lessons presented by the guests in the first session. We will use policy "worksheets" as a tool to focus your thought process, frame the small-group discussions, and drive you to make hard choices. You will write 5-10 weekly short memos to explain your choices. Each week will cover a different policy topic. At least the first few weeks will center on hard policy choices in the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Other likely topics include immigration reform, climate change, debt reduction, and the role of the corporation in a capitalist economy. Our exact topic schedule is flexible based on current events and guest speaker availability.
