    Abstract

    There is no shortage of warnings concerning the hazards of excessive ambition in consciously‐pursued public policy. In the light of these cautions, this paper considers the appropriate ambitions for policy design. The critics have missed the target. There is no need to fear ambition in policy design, provided that openness in communications about policy is secured.
