Conundrum

£14.99

Product description

The book is in fine condition with only light creasing to the jacket edges. Comprising an examination of why government spending ultimately fails the taxpayer, the authors examine a wide variety of cases, such as the infamous Child Support Agency, the deeply flawed National Programme for IT in the NHS and the scandalous adult training scheme, where hundreds of millions and even billions of pounds of taxpayers' money were spent on projects and programmes that went wrong, and individual members of the public suffered as a result. Policy implementation must change, but how? The authors' conclusions are unexpected - and the book is a must-read for any politician, civil servant or taxpayer who wants to their money to be better spent.
