Question and answer
What are the couses of effinciency in delivaring socio-economic services?
Public officials can produce better and cheaper results when they buy smarter, and few areas are more ripe for change or so fraught with problems as when government procures social services. As a rule, [ government purchases activities- such as drug and mental-health counseling, job training or homeless-shelter beds- rather than the outcomes these activities are intended to bring about. As Gigi Georges, Tim Glynn Burke and I discussed in our recent book, "The Power of Social Innovation," we need newer, more disruptive ways to shake up what is often an iron triangle of social-services
funding that protects the status quo at the expense of those who need help. Two recent initiatives hold the promise of better results. ]
