The U.S. Constitution’s Impact on Public Administration

The U.S. constitution advocates for separation of powers because there is an overriding fear of what would happen if power is concentrated in one branch. The content and development of the U.S. constitution was influenced by political and economic conditions among others. Anderson (2015) asks a very important question on whether the constitutional heritage does influence or should influence the American approach to public administration.

The place of Woodrow Wilson in the American public administration scholarship has been challenged and lauded especially in the politics- administration dichotomy (Anderson, 2015). The argument of Aristotle in the ‘Politics’ is perhaps the earliest influence of U.S. constitution. Aristotle identified the types of constitutions based on the number of rulers at the head of a government and stated that the best constitution was based on the common good regardless of the form of government. Therefore, the US constitution was based on common good politics. The development of the U.S. constitution was influenced by the urge to develop a country that is strong economically. The constitution further considers the rights of workers and the role of the trade unions (Hamilton, 1787; Madison, 1787).

As a public administrator, I would ensure that the provision of the constitution are honored and followed to the latter to ensure that the rights of every individual and department are honored. For instance, I would allow employees to register with trade unions for their collective rights to be advocated and I would ensure that the process of administering the public is not influenced by politics. In this case, I would ensure that there is a balance between politics and public administration in order to work effectively.
