Om boka

Le Grand's main themes revolve around the provision of genuine choice to users of public services and the incentives for improved service delivery that such provision puts in place. Provision of choice to users--especially in health and education--is controversial, partly because of doubts about user ignorance and because it runs in the face of professional norms. Le Grand delivers a very persuasive case in favor of user choice. This is a wise, imaginative, and eminently readable book. -- Geoffrey Brennan, Australian National University This book provides a great introduction to the crucial debate about choice in public services. Julian Le Grand makes a strong case that choice can be both more efficient and more equitable as a means of delivering public services. -- Simon Burgess, University of Bristol
