This book is about change in the management of public services – how
much of it and what consequences. For over two decades the goal of
restructuring welfare provision has been at the heart of UK government
policy. Under the Conservatives the focus was on controlling expenditure
and re-organising services to make professionals more accountable
for resource decisions. In health, education and social care, the objective
was to install a system of managed provision heavily influenced by
the practices of private firms.

crease knowledge-related performance by better use of intellectual assets, in addition to which many
governments are forced to increasingly deal with knowledge services that form larger parts of the global

This project has its origins in a conference on ecosystem services that Gretchen
Daily of the Stanford Biology Department, Geoff Heal of the Columbia Business
School, and Peter Raven, Director of the Missouri Botanical Gardens,
organized at the Gardens in 1998. Having become intrigued by the concept of
ecosystem services, which at the time was still relatively new even within ecological
economics, the three of us eagerly attended and immediately noticed
that, besides J. B., only one other lawyer was present in the audience of more
than a hundred.
It is a cause for celebration to be able to introduce this thought-provoking
book to a wider public. Each chapter is the tip of an iceberg of knowledge and
experience, perfectly replicating the sense of discovery of the original study
day that inspired the book.
The Social Perspectives Network (SPN) is a network open to anyone
who is interested in looking at mental distress in terms of people’s social

The use of the Internet (and other information technology) among
the general population has resulted in a rising level of comfort and
familiarity with these technologies. Businesses such as retailers,
banks, and investment companies have been shifting more of their operations
online, seeking to meet customer demand while reducing costs.
Many businesses offer customer services online (these electronic services
are often called e-business), often 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Particularly if poverty reduction is the goal, listening to the poor, in-
volving them in decisionmaking, in the planning and implementation
of programs and projects that affect their lives is a must. Empowerment
of the poor is as critical to their well-being as giving them the projects,
investments, and programs to improve their quality of life.
Some of these insights implicitly or explicitly shape and influence the
thinking of social funds, but this is an evolving process. New insights

Social Impact Bonds are the newest idea to catch the eye of governments attempting to
“reform” the public service to save money.
In the 2012 federal budget, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced that Social Impact
Bonds held “promise” and the federal government was looking at adopting them. As part of
his report for the Ontario government recommending major cuts to public services, Don
Drummond called for pilot projects using Social Impact Bonds in several different areas. In
Alberta, the Progressive Conservatives support them.

What features (or even design philosophies) should such a system have in order to become an integral part of our work environments? What scaled-down versions of these features might be possible in the near future in "simple service systems" ? These issues can be broken down into the following four questions: i.
Governments within mixed economies have regularly supplanted the market determination of prices with legally instituted prices. In some cases, governments dictate that goods and services may not be sold for more than a specific price—price ceilings.

The environment provides services that are used by both household units and production units of the economy. In the processes of consumption and production, wastes are generated. If the ecological system cannot recycle these wastes as fast as they are generated, wastes accumulate. This constitutes pollution.
