Medical training: first farce then tragedy

6 Apr 2009
Description

This paper prescribes a dose of market forces for Australia's medical workforce training.

It is a cautionary story about that fatal conceit, especially relevant in this era of neo-Keynesianism where government intervention is becoming the default mode. It shows how central planning, to paraphrase Karl Marx, can result first in farce and then in a tragedy of disappointment and waste.

Steven Schwartz is Vice-Chancellor of Macquarie University, Sydney.
