  • Policy Feedback in an Age of Polarization
    • Authors: Jacob S. Hacker, Paul Pierson
      Pages: 8 - 28
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 8-28, September 2019.
      A large body of research has explored how policies, once enacted, reshape public opinion, governing institutions, and political organizations—a process known as “policy feedback.” Yet this productive research agenda has yet to be translated into practical recommendations of the sort regularly provided by other social science research. This volume of The ANNALS presents the findings of a major collective effort to do just this. The Policy Feedback Project (PFP) is an effort to develop research-backed arguments about how policy feedback might be harnessed to address collective problems in today’s age of partisan polarization and economic inequality. This article orients readers to our collective approach and summarizes some of the contributing authors’ findings. In particular, we show how the feedback effects of policies could be used to (1) tackle long-standing public problems that have resisted effective responses, (2) increase the long-term durability of policy initiatives designed to address these problems, and (3) build political momentum and power to facilitate the adaptation and expansion of these initiatives over time.

  • Making What Government Does Apparent to Citizens: Policy Feedback Effects,
           Their Limitations, and How They Might Be Facilitated
    • Authors: Suzanne Mettler
      Pages: 30 - 46
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 30-46, September 2019.
      Public policies sometimes generate “policy feedback effects,” reshaping public opinion and political participation among beneficiaries or the public generally, often with the effects of generating supportive constituencies that help to sustain the program. Yet such effects do not always occur; in fact, despite that Americans use more social policies than ever, antipathy to government runs high—evidence of a seeming “government-citizen disconnect.” Policy design and delivery matters for policy feedback, as policies that make government’s role more visible may make more of an impression on beneficiaries; yet political polarization and distrust in government can interfere with such effects. In addition, those who are most aware of the government’s role in social provision often participate least in politics, and vice versa. This article considers strategies that public officials and other civic and political leaders can use to facilitate policy feedback effects.

  • Limiting Policy Backlash: Strategies for Taming Countercoalitions in an
           Era of Polarization
    • Authors: Eric M. Patashnik
      Pages: 47 - 63
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 47-63, September 2019.
      Policy backlash occurs when people or organizations mobilize against a policy during or after its enactment, diminishing the power of supporters and reducing the likelihood of the policy’s subsequent entrenchment and expansion. This article analyzes backlash as a case of negative policy feedback and explores some of the mechanisms through which backlash occurs among elites, organized groups, and mass publics. The main focus is on the politics of “backlash prevention”: using strategies to minimize the prospects of countercoalitions against policies serving diffuse or marginalized constituencies in an era of partisan polarization. These strategies include increasing the progressivity of programs after they have become embedded, recognizing that reforms can threaten the social identities and status of constituencies, and increasing reliance on low-visibility taxes. While countercoalitions cannot be completely neutralized in today’s contentious political environment, these strategies can load the dice in favor of sustainable change.

  • Asymmetric Partisan Polarization, Labor Policy, and Cross-State Political
           Power-Building
    • Authors: Alexander Hertel-Fernandez
      Pages: 64 - 79
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 64-79, September 2019.
      As the Republican Party has moved to the Right, conservative politicians have become more comfortable viewing policy as a means of demobilizing their political adversaries. In this article, I show how conservative activists within the Republican Party have leveraged cutbacks to union rights to weaken their political opponents. This case study thus reveals the role of policy feedback strategies in asymmetric partisan polarization. It also illustrates lessons about the conditions under which policy feedback can durably shift the distribution of power in America’s fragmented polity. These insights underscore how the success of policy feedback effects depends not just on the initial passage of policies in one city or state, but on the ability of political actors to organize in multiple venues simultaneously. In particular, they highlight the importance of organizing at the cross-state level given the substantial political authority of states.

  • A New Path for U.S. Climate Politics: Choosing Policies That Mobilize
           Business for Decarbonization
    • Authors: Jonas Meckling
      Pages: 82 - 95
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 82-95, September 2019.
      What policies could mobilize business support for progressive and durable national climate policy in the United States' I examine the climate policy experiences of U.S. states and propose that a national clean energy standard combined with carefully allocated public investment in clean energy infrastructure and innovation could mobilize economic interests in support of decarbonization. Further, I argue that the more entrenched clean energy and infrastructure become, the more likely it becomes that comprehensive climate policies can be passed in the future. This includes performance and deployment mandates beyond the electricity industry, including in the transport and building sectors. These initial steps may also help to build a winning coalition for progressive federal carbon pricing, as opposed to an accommodative coalition in support of weak carbon pricing.

  • Building Climate Policy in the States
    • Authors: Samuel Trachtman
      Pages: 96 - 114
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 96-114, September 2019.
      Large-scale carbon emissions reductions in the United States likely require national-level policy, but political and institutional constraints restrict the scope of policy that can be enacted in Washington. State governments, on the other hand, have demonstrated a remarkable willingness to enact climate policies, despite the global nature of the problem. Although it is limited in directly reducing carbon emissions, state policy has the potential to make the terrain of U.S. climate politics more fertile for future policy. I discuss mechanisms by which climate policies enacted at the state level can influence climate politics across the states and at the national level. Finally, I make policy and political strategy recommendations that take these multilevel policy feedback dynamics into account.

  • Medicaid and the Policy Feedback Foundations for Universal Healthcare
    • Authors: Jamila Michener
      Pages: 116 - 134
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 116-134, September 2019.
      Public policies are products of politics, but they also feed back into the political system by shaping the actions and attitudes of members of the polity. To date, scholarly examinations of feedback processes have been mostly concerned with understanding the relationship between public policy and democracy; relatively little attention has been paid to connecting policy feedback to the practical questions that animate politics. This article examines policy feedback as it applies to efforts aimed at achieving universal health coverage in the United States—a widely held policy goal shared by a majority of American voters across partisan lines. I argue that in the contemporary political context, Medicaid—a pillar of the American healthcare system and the primary mechanism for insuring low-income and disabled citizens—can produce negative feedbacks that demobilize political action, destabilize advocacy groups, and deter coalition building. Together, these feedbacks undermine future possibilities for universal healthcare. After detailing these democratic dilemmas, I outline strategies for proactively addressing them.

  • Medicare Expansion as a Path as well as a Destination: Achieving Universal
           Insurance through a New Politics of Medicare
    • Authors: Jacob S. Hacker
      Pages: 135 - 153
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 135-153, September 2019.
      Growing interest in “Medicare for All” has revived hopes for universal health insurance. Yet serious disagreements remain over how to expand Medicare and how far to move toward a universal Medicare system. In this article, I consider these disagreements in light of what we know about “policy feedback”—the ways in which policies, once enacted, reshape public opinion, governing institutions, and political organizations. Rather than focusing on the “political feasibility” of proposals for Medicare expansion, I focus on their “policy sustainability”: whether proposals, once enacted, can be established in place, entrenched over time, and expanded and improved as circumstances change. Achieving these “three E’s,” I argue, requires a flexible approach that builds on the current system (and hence falls short of Medicare for All) but also contains a universal coverage guarantee and other provisions designed to create strong feedback effects conducive to the expansion of Medicare over time.

  • Antitrust Enforcement as Federal Policy to Reduce Regional Economic
           Disparities
    • Authors: Robert Manduca
      Pages: 156 - 171
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 156-171, September 2019.
      Regions of the United States have seen their incomes diverge dramatically over the last four decades. This article makes the empirical and political case for treating regional economic disparities as a national phenomenon best resolved through federal policy, rather than exclusively as a matter of local responsibility. It then considers reinvigorated antitrust enforcement as an example of a federal policy that would strengthen local economies while benefiting from policy feedback effects.

  • Rebuilding Labor Power in the Postindustrial United States
    • Authors: Andrew Schrank
      Pages: 172 - 188
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 172-188, September 2019.
      Workers in the United States have lost their voice (or influence) in Washington and the workplace. Industrial unions are ill-suited to the postindustrial economy, and alternative organs of representation and influence (i.e., “alt-labor”) are trapped in a vicious circle of vulnerability and volatility that limits their likely growth. As a result of this, power is increasingly skewed toward employers and their political allies, who add to labor’s difficulties by eliminating and evading remaining labor protections. The federal government could help to restore a balance of power between workers and employers by establishing and enforcing a robust wage floor: (1) a $15 an hour minimum wage, (2) a nationwide hotline for workers who believe that their rights had been violated (“911 for workers”), and (3) a database that would allow regulatory agencies and worker organizations to rationalize and coordinate labor and employment law efforts. Doing so would produce a positive feedback loop so workers regain their voice on the job and in politics.

  • De-Policing America’s Youth: Disrupting Criminal Justice Policy
           Feedbacks That Distort Power and Derail Prospects
    • Authors: Vesla M. Weaver, Amanda Geller
      Pages: 190 - 226
      Abstract: The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Volume 685, Issue 1, Page 190-226, September 2019.
      The standard account of policy feedback holds that social policy can be self-reinforcing: policies provide resources that promote economic security and well-being, and they also encourage beneficiaries to engage with government. Criminal justice policies have typically had the opposite effect: they embolden those with interests in a punitive policy agenda, while disempowering those most affected by the policies. This is of particular concern for children and adolescents in race-class subjugated communities (RCS), whose first encounters with government beyond public schooling often come through police contact and carry adverse social and political consequences at a critical developmental stage. In this article, we reimagine youth engagement with the state, arguing for substantial reductions in police surveillance of young people and for the promotion of youth attachment to civic life. We call for an investment in institutions, both state-based and community-based, that reinforce political inclusion and civic belonging.

      Although political scientists have documented the effects of incarceration on those serving time in prison and jail, there has been much less discussion about feedback effects on the attitudes of those who work in correctional institutions. This is a considerable oversight, given the enormous growth of the correctional workforce and its importance in the implementation of crime policy. In this article, we present original survey data from a large sample of California correctional officers. Our analyses suggest that characteristics of the institutions where correctional officers work—the levels of violence to which they are exposed, the proportion of inmates involved in high-quality rehabilitation programs, as well as the quality of management—help to shape officers’ attitudes toward rehabilitation. These dynamics have important implications for how public policies can create political constituencies among criminal justice officers. The attitudes of these officers should therefore be a concern for scholars, advocates, and practitioners who are interested in political strategies for long-term, meaningful reform to the correctional system.
