Government Relations and Public Policy

As we begin the second decade of the 21st century, government is asserting itself more pervasively than at any time in the last 30 years. Governments around the world are being given permission by their citizens to address, in unprecedented ways, the global economic crisis. Governments are rewriting economic rules and hence, creating new implications for organizations participating in their economies.

In addition to its traditional roles as public policy maker, regulator, and purchaser, governments have increasingly become investors, conservators, managing principals, and brand overseers. Organizations that once controlled their brand identity, management systems, and operational strategies now have greatly reduced freedom of action.

Yet at the same time, the forces of globalization and the globally integrated economy continue to advance. This is creating new challenges and opportunities for private and public, for-profit and not-for-profit entities who must deal with the primacy of government.
