Static Response

A deliberate choice not to intervene made after an analysis of a problem.

(Pal, L. (2006). Beyond Policy Analysis: Public Issue Management in Turbulent Times. Third Edition. Toronto: Nelson – Thomson, p.183.)

---------------------------------

There may be several good rationales for declining to intervene that together comprise a coherent set of considerations that should be part of any systematic process of instrument choice, even though "doing nothing" does not intuitively fit the notion of an instrument or tool. These rationales may be problem-related, resource-related, precedent-related, or self-corrective system rationales.
