29 Jan How Old Bottles Create New Jobs: Both Legal and Not
After reading the case please answer the following questions:
1.How are wicked problems defined?
2.To what extent do you think this recycling discussion case represents a wicked problem? How so?
3.Some recent studies are questioning the ways in which recycling is managed- noting that less energy is used and costs are lower if all municipal waste is simply put into one trash receptacle for pickup and then sorted by machines at facilities. Which method do you supportmore efficient trash waste collection or methods that engage the public in recycling?
4.Based on the reading of chapter two of the textbook and the case you just read, do you think wicked problems can be solved through good public policy making and implementation? Why? Why not?
5.Can you think of a wicked problem in the past that has been solved through public policy?
The original answer to the case study questions should be around 500 words total. Please be coherent and avoid repetition. I’ve provided a comment to reply to and it should be around 200 words each. The comment should discuss the answers, not the authors. They should add something to the discussion and/ or provide constructive criticism. the reply to the comment should have an argument to back up the agreement.
I have upload the case study along with the chapter(p.40-75) that goes along with it and along the comment to reply to.
Thus case study and chapters are from
