Limitations of Market Research

Cost Effectiveness and All That

S K Bhattacharyya Performance Budgeting by A Premchand; Academic Books, Bombay; 1969; pp 150; Rs 18.50. ONE of the most heartening developments in recent years has been the introduction of the cost effectiveness concept in Government budgeting. It is true that some form of cost effectiveness was introduced in the US Government accounting system even prior to the induction of Robert McNamara by Kennedy from Detroit to Washington.

In introducing performance budgeting, which is built around the concept of cost effectiveness, McNamara stepped on quite a few corns, particularly those of his Chiefs of Staff who were somewhat unaccustomed to being told by a mere civilian what was good for them. Added to these injuries were insults by way of questions which McNamara constantly raised at the Pentagon
