This is all the more problematic because, as I argue, the OECD countries themselves did not follow this path. Although the problems in OECD countries were almost as urgent as they are nowadays in the developing countries, their governments did not try to solve them all at once. In the following chapters, I argue that they recovered from the severe poverty they experienced just after the Second World War and became the most affluent countries of the world in 2000 by taking the alternative route.

Parliamentary elections might also induce regular succession and enhance flexibility, because of the rejuvenation and cohort replacement of decision-makers. 4 A flexible starting point The argument is that balancing different values sequentially is the more promising option compared to balancing those values simultaneously. The question that arises is whether there is a specific order in the prioritization and what value has to be addressed first. As to the latter question, I have no answer. This might well vary over different countries and in different situations.

First, such policies have to achieve the goals for which they were developed. Public policies can be seen as answers to societal problems, and the least one would expect is that they remove, resolve or regulate these problems.

In the long term, such policies have to be effective in addressing and eliminating the latent underlying causes of delinquency.
