Provide four to five credible policy alternatives that merit your clients consideration. Explain the rationale behind each alternative and provide sufficient detail about how it would work.

1) Provide four to five credible policy alternatives that merit your clients consideration. Explain the rationale behind each alternative and provide sufficient detail about how it would work. (Proposed alternatives should be conceptually distinct rather than slight variations of one another. One of your options should be a do nothing or status quo alternative. Describe it in the same level of detail as your other alternatives.)
Describe the evaluation criteria that you believe should drive the decision about
which alternative to select. (Bear in mind that your criteria must be operationalized in your paper; you are not developing criteria for use during policy implementation. Be specific about how your criteria would be operationalized. Some criteria may be important not because your client cares about them, but because other stakeholders care about them. Do not describe how your alternatives will fare with respect to the criteria; simply describe the criteria.
2) Project/predict the performance of alternatives
3) Assess the tradeoffs among alternatives
4) Recommend an alternative; make sure to explain WHY you have chosen that
alternative. The analysis should demonstrate the student understands course material and be based both on logic and on the presentation and critique of relevant evidence.
Make sure you briefly articulate the essential tradeoffs your client faces.
