Appendix B: Sample Journal Prompts
1.
Kingdon describes policy-making in terms of a “garbage can model” in which

random fashion until a policy entrepreneur links them together. Working at the
CPF, have you noticed instances in which a policy entrepreneur(s) have been able

entrepreneurs? How did they accomplish that task?
2.
Economists highlight the critical nature of “opportunity cost” in realizing that not

Stockton? What makes one policy more important than another at any given
point in time?
3.
Munger discusses the ongoing conflict between markets and policy experts, with
each advocating for different types of solutions to policy problems. In your
experience at CPF, under what circumstances are market-based approaches or
government-regulation type approaches favored?
