内容説明

The choices we make in everyday life and the choices made by firms and governments in economic planning have become at once more complex and more decisive in their impact. Working life has become more flexible and insecure. Many people have more money to spend and more choices to make while some do not. Public services are increasingly organized according to a market logic. The pressures of international competition are affecting more aspects of commercial and industrial life. This book draws on economics, psychology, sociology and public policy analysis to demonstrate that the rational choice through a calculative deliberation between alternatives and respond to the incentives of price and opportunity on the basis of self-interest, and which underlies much contemporary public policy-making, is misleading. The new policies of active consumerism, privatization and the expansion of markets are seriously flawed.

内容説明

Public policies increasingly emphasize active consumerism, entrepreneurship on the part of service providers and professionals, privatization, and an expanded role for markets. This text draws on research by economists, psychologists, sociologists and public policy experts. The research demonstrates that the traditional rational choice model of economic behaviour is unsatisfactory in providing accounts of the way people choose in relation to work, saving, spending, investment and social welfare. It also shows that the public policies of active consumerism, public sector entrepreneurship, and privatization based on this approach may be flawed.
