Design and National Policy
Around the world, political leaders, corporate managers, and professionals are all acknowledging the value of design. It is an impressive consensus - good news for designers. However, this is not one but multiple stories. Different national priorities, a range of economic circumstances, a balance between service and product businesses that varies country to country, and diverse perspectives on managing the economy mean that there are many approaches to design and public policy. The articles in this issue of the Review highlight the mix of perspectives and analyze the advantages and limitations of available public policy options.
