Анотація (Abstract):  “New public management” (NPM) was ostensibly intended to create “a government that works better and costs less”; “aptitude maximized, expense minimized” a slogan of nearly two centuries before. This paper is a critical to approach three decades or so of NPM reforms and new management strategies. The conclusion expressed in the paper is this: higher public costs, loss of accountability and an increasing democratic deficit of those reform strategies. A comprehensive UK evaluation report published recently published confirms those conclusions. My paper analyzes the socio-economic and historical background of the new management strategies and administrative reforms, with focus on the socio-economic problems of the United Kingdom.
