Abstract : The paper explores the possibilities for the extension of operational gaming to the public-systems sector and evaluates the potential of nonprofit government-agency-serving systems-research organizations to operate in the nonmilitary public-policy field. The larger part of the effort thus far expended in the development of socioeconomic games has been in the area of urban-development or community-renewal planning, and this dominance will likely continue, although some difficulty in communication between game contractors and clients has been experienced. However, the author believes these difficulties can be overcome and suggests several ways of accomplishing this. (Author)
