Which is the best definition of public policy? ways the government promotes the general welfare analysis of policy issues to determine a course of action actions a government takes in responding to a public problem actions taken by groups and government representatives to address problems

The correct answer is the third one: actions a government takes in responding to a public problem.

Public policies are projects and activities designed and managed by a state through a government and a public administration in order to satisfy specific needs of the society. These projects and activities are actions, regulatory measures, laws, and budget priorities on a particular topic promulgated by a governmental entity. Since public problems are very varied, public policies refer to different aspects of the society, like education, health, social development, urban infrastructure, taxation, among several others. Since their approach is very general, they are broken down into plans, programs, and projects, each of one having a shorter term goal in order to achieve the general objective of the public policy.

Which of the following is a society’s first economic task? a. fulfilling people’s transportation needs by manufacturing automobiles b. deciding what role technology should play in the economy c. fulfilling people’s basic needs by providing food, shelter, and clothing d. providing people with goods from all over the world

The correct answer is C) fulfilling people’s basic needs by providing food, shelter, and clothing.

The option that describes a society’s first economic task is "fulfilling people’s basic needs by providing food, shelter, and clothing."

As it was stated by Abraham Maslow's pyramid of necessities, basic needs such as food, shelter, and clothing, are the first ones that any economic system must cover. If any form of government or economic system fails in providing these basic needs, its citizens are going to suffer from economic problems. Once basic needs are covered, then, they can work and produce more.
