Abstract

The case presents a number of somewhat artificial situations where Government must choose between a large capital intensive and small labour intensive solution to a problem. These include retail marketing, transport services and manufacturing. The students must identify economic, social and political factors which affect the decisions and the case introduces them to the difficulties of implementing the supposedly universal panacea of ''small is beautiful''.
