THE UNEMPLOYMENT BUREAUCRACY In most of the developed nations, the employment market is serviced by both public and commercial employment placement agencies. Most of the public agencies are funded or subsidised by the central government and are operated by massive civil service rules and regulations, which have had the usual bureaucratising effects. Registration for employment placement or checking for new openings depends primarily on the applicants waiting on long lines, only to be served in a less than effective information exchange.

PROBLEMS WITH THE NHS In Britain the national health service is almost 40 years old. Health care, at great expense to the economy, is available to all residents without cost, except for minimal fees for particular items.
