Penny wise, pound foolish: why deinstitutionalization from mental hospitals has cost us dear
This thesis set out to examine two accounting questions. The first one was whether accounting had played a role in encouraging the shifting of costs between the government (particularly the State Government of New South Wales) and the following groups of people:
- People with mental illness
- Carers of people with mental illness
- Government institutions for health, jails, welfare and housing
- Non-government charitable institutions
