Descripción

159 indexed pages. The Australian Animal Health Laboratory was built at a cost of more than $160 million in 1984 and has yet to operate as originally intended. Vast sums of public money were poured into Awsat despite misgivings about its economic viability and continued operation. Now it has been sold off. Technology Parks were all the rage not long ago, but few have delivered their promise. Sydney's sewage pollution will persist because of decisions made a decade ago. Almost every day the media contains some speculation about projects such as the Multifunction Polis, the Very Fast Train, the Cape York Spaceport and the Sydney Harbour Tunnel. All are examples of Australia's existing or potential ‘technological white elephants': all were - or will be - established at the taxpayers’ expense. The fiascos exposed in this book provide compelling insights into the political and economic forces that have produced, and continue to produce, costly and potentially unruly white elephants. Size: 12mo. N° de ref. de la librería 055375
