Reputation–based governance is a way of executing (and, possibly, of choosing) public policies that hinges on the reputation of the actors involved, by a systematic use of an appropriate digital information system that computes reputation measures, makes them accessible to all, and uses them appropriately. The main thesis of the paper is that the availability of the Internet would today allow for sweeping changes in public governance, towards a reputation-based governance characterized by an unprecedented degree of transparency and of accountability of policy makers and public administrators, and, possibly, by very advanced forms of democratic participation.
