a must read for any potential public sector manager,
This review is from: The Scheme for Full Employment (Paperback)
this book will not be very interesting to anyone who has not worked in the UK. to those who have it will be a enjoyable fantasy, with a LOT OF MEANING. the book seems to be based in the 1960s; but it still has a lot of comtemporary points. the basic plot is covered in previous reviews, but the idea of a large number of people doing non productive work, courtesy of the tax payer, oblivious to the fact that their jobs are of no benefit, has a lot of relevance to the 'job creation' seen in the last few years.
i defy anyone who has worked for the NHS to read it without smiling
