Evaluating Hydraulic Fracturing from a ‘Tools of Government’ Perspective
Leonard A. Miller lectured at a graduate student seminar at Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, MD on April 8, 2013. His lecture focused on "Evaluating Hydraulic Fracturing from a 'Tools of Government' Perspective," (i.e., federal and state government powers).
In attendance were students in the Public Policy Master’s Degree Program, and this year for the first time a significant percentage of such students were from China. Dr. Lester Salamon, who conducted the seminar, is a professor and director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies and has been a senior official at the Urban Institute and the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. Professor Salamon is a pioneer in the empirical study of the nonprofit sector in the U.S. and the world. He has formulated a new approach to public administration focused on the tools of government and this seminar was an outgrowth of his work.
