DescriptionDemocracy demands that public policy ultimately reflect evolving social thought. However, in the nonmarket realm of public land management, and environmental policy more broadly, where price signals that drive the free-market economy are generally lacking, this requires a concerted effort on the part of social science to measure and monitor societal values and related thinking in ways that will facilitate their integration into policy making. In fact, application of social science to environmental thought has been an ongoing project since the emergence of the environmental movement in the 1960s.
