Does Public Involvement Enhance Tough Decision-Making?
From the Inverness Courier: "Supporters say they increase public participation in the political process and even contribute to stability and happiness. The mere threat of a plebiscite is often enough to force elected members to seek a compromise solution or amend an unpopular policy.
Opponents complain they slow the decision-making process down and deter politicians from seeking bold solutions to problems."
