What is public policy ?

I would like to refer to the incident resulting in the blockage of the Suez Canal caused by the ship Ever Given getting wedged across it.
In my view, the ship represents the government system, and the earth-moving machine which is minuscule in comparison are the policy interventions. If it succeeds in freeing the ship, trade would flourish, bringing prosperity to many parts of the world.
Public policy in my view is that machine through which small interventions can bring about disproportionate impact.
