Criteria for Utopian Visions

  • Evaluate alternatives in terms of three criteria: desirability, viability, achievability
  • Do not let the problem of achievability dictate the discussion of viability
  • Clarify the problem of winners and losers in structural transformation
  • Identify normative trade-offs in institutional designs and the transitional costs in their creation
  • Analyze alternatives in terms of waystations and intermediary forms as well as destinations. Pay particular attention to the potential of waystations to open up virtuous cycles of transformation.
