Meeting Human Needs: Toward a New Public Philosophy.
Meyer, Jack A., Ed.
The joint product of 18 contributors, this book evaluates the potential of the private sector for delivering a wide range of human services to alleviate social problems. It also assesses the effect of governmental programs and policies on nongovernmental organizations. Part 1 of the book presents a conceptual framework for making government programs more effective and for increasing private participation in meeting human needs. Part 2 describes innovative activities of businesses, labor unions, and neighborhood groups on behalf of those in need. Part 3 analyzes economic aspects of the private sector's ability to address social problems. Finally, the concluding part contains case studies of private sector initiatives in the areas of youth employment, health, education, foster care, housing, crime prevention, and transportation.
