Effective policies and efficient policy-making skills are one of the primary determinants of robust economies for our quickly developing modern world. Professionals require a contemporary and interdisciplinary approach to policy-making to work beyond conventional approaches.

Firstly, professionals, including those in start-ups social enterprises, organizations that can be classified and developmental oriented or non governmental, need to understand the symbiotic relationship that organizations have with the government and the how they fit into the big picture of the State and Market nexus.

Secondly, it is imperative to understand this through a broad perspective and developing additional skill sets beyond what is often taught in business programs to effectively comprehend the function of the State in the spheres of welfare and regulation.

Thirdly, these perspectives mired with such nuances need to be brought into the organization’s context to create an ecosystem that doesn’t just lead to tolerance or sustainability but allows for the organization to thrive.
