Volume III takes studies further and presents a concrete and practical example of how to build a Planning Accounting Framework (PAF), as associated with Frisch''s ''plan-frame'' (explored in Volume II), to demonstrate the extent to which decisions and negotiations can be routed in the social sciences.
