  • It is essentially a debate over external and internal accountability. Friedrich was in favour of internal checks and balances(moral responsibility) while Finer advocated external accountability to political representatives.

    I think it extends deeper also into responsibility and functions also apart from fixing accountability(who performs the functions and how). It is a post-analysis on Goodnow dichotomy. Long time lost touch with pubad. I think the FF debate is there in responsibility and accountability chapters of most pubad ppr 1 books.
