Title: What Power the Administrative State?
Lead Author: Neuby, Barbara L.
Abstract: The administrative state is a term coined to denote the vast network of agencies that carry out law. As society has grown more complex, so too has government expanded in its attempt to intervene in the many varied situations in which we find ourselves. An outgrowth of those attempts is the concomitant growth in the administrative agencies of government to level as yet unseen by modern societies. The number of agencies and organizations, their expanded jurisdictions into new areas of life, and their increasingly final controls over events coupled with lack of legislative oversight, media abdication of reporting, and public ignorance of administration combine to elevate the unbridled power of the administrative networks to a danger level capable of altering the course of nation states and of contributing to the decline of free societies. Social Science disciplines thus have a grand challenge before themto structure and guide the debate over the proper balance of administrative power before they too lose their right to address the question.
