Subject: Political Science
How can we evaluate policy and determine its costs?
Policy can be evaluated by determining both visible and hidden costs. Visible costs can extend beyond the realm of monetary to include time and disruption. For example, the cost of building a road will of course include monetary costs but more than that it will include the need to provide alternate roots and cost in time. Oftentimes the "true cost" all things considered cannot be given a single value.
How does our culture affect our perception of the world?
Culture has a variety of impacts on day-to-day life. Oftentimes the forces at work behind our actions derive from culture. For example, when you eat breakfast in the morning there is a routine you may follow. Perhaps you start with coffee or maybe tea. Whatever you start your day with has been taught to you by someone else. This process is called cultural indoctrination. Being a "cultural person" is not a choice but simply an aspect of humanity. Therefore, culture is all around us and affects most everything in our lives.
