The still-nascent Australian National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is funding the delivery of personalised disability care via a quasi-market structure primarily to achieve consumer choice and control. Budget personalisation requires access to product variety and, in a nascent market, this raises the question as to the role policy may have in stewarding quasi-markets, in turn raising further questions regarding the nature of the quasi-market structure likely to emerge through the NDIS with concomitant implications for social welfare. Here we use the economics literature on product variety to: (i) assess the extent of personalisation likely to be provided by the quasi-market; (ii) elucidate the quasi-market structure likely to emerge as a consequence; and, (iii) quantify quasi-market depth. The results are then used to elucidate options for identifying thin markets within the NDIS’ administrative structure of 76 districts and three support classes.

They Call me Shuffles

    A diagnosis with Parkinson's changes a lot of things: Motor function, non-motor functions, but maybe even more powerful is the changes in social interactions. I personally don't mind being called "Shuffles" now, I did at first (8 or so years ago I think), I...
