The Long Term Effects of Merit Rating Plans on Individual Motorists
Author(s)Ferreira, Joseph Jr.; Keeney, Ralph L.
Student interest in public sector problems has increased markedly in recent years. At M.I.T., this change has increased the demand for courses and programs of study that lead to the development of technologically advanced hardware such as pollution controlling devices. At the same time, it has promoted interest in analogous "software" problems associated with the formulation of public policy and the efficient operation of public systems. In this paper, we discuss curricula dealing with the more quantitative aspects of public systems analyses and describe a graduate subject which has been helpful in introducing students to the use of systematic analyses in addressing such problems.
