Abstract

In order to ensure that government policies do not produce government failure that impedes the vitality of the market and keeps disadvantaged individuals from becoming self-sufficient, the public assistance system needs to be reorganized, welfare programs that overlap different ministries should be linked, and appropriate performance indicators should be designated that do not distort the way public servants work.
Only 34 percent of individuals who participate in the Job Training Account Program for the jobless are hired, and 69 percent of those who are hired find jobs in industries that do not correspond to the area in which they received training.
Liberalizing prices when competition structure in price and quality has not been established runs the risk of wasting government funds and price increase without producing any meaningful benefits.(The rest omitted)
