Gammon's Law of Bureaucratic Displacement. In 1960 British physician Dr. Max Gammon published a paper on his study of the British National Health Service in which he tried to find an explanation for the observation that quality of care was going down while expenditures were going up. He blamed the government bureaucracy that was set up to administer the program, and concluded that such developments are inevitable in any bureaucratic system. He said. "In a bureaucratic system, increase in expenditure will be matched by fall in production. … Such systems will act rather like `black holes,' in the economic universe, simultaneously sucking in resources, and shrinking in terms of `emitted production.' … productive activity is progressively displaced by non-productive bureaucratic activity."
