Policy autism

However, what seems a triumph of the will to some may appear to be policy autism to others, if one defines ‘policy autism’ as the pathological inability to read and process critical signals into coherent and appropriate policy. Given the extent to which the Howard government has ignored critical changes in the social, economic and environmental settings for climate policy since 1997, maybe its climate policy stance should therefore also be interpreted as an instance of policy autism.
