  7. Abstract:
  8. Social learning approach in economic policymaking is introduced against conflict-based approach in the similar context. Helco, 1973 first studied the effects of such a learning in economic policymaking and said ”men collectively wondering what to do… Governments not only ‘power’… they also puzzle.” The important point in studying policymaking through social learning approach is paradigm shifts in peoples’ mental models. In this approach, policies are not only the result of conflict between different interests but also are the output of a learning process. In this research we first assume that social learning has not occurred in policymaking community and that individual learning has considerably taken place. Then we look for the answer of the question that what kind of impediments makes the social learning process ineffective. The results show that different factors from ineffective communication to structural problems cause this faulty loop of learning
