This chapter addresses the last key issue of Public Administration, and provides an introduction to theories explaining the varying connection between public policies resulting in collective goods and the collective problems to which public policies are supposedly an answer. It also focuses on research which aims to strengthen the relation between public policies (as answers to problems) and the problems themselves.
