This chapter suggests that the deterioration in the Granby ward in Liverpool was because of the lack of government action. It explains that the application of business management to local government led to the take-over of the administration of community affairs by the bureaucracy and highlights the failure of this approach to resolve the deepening crisis in the inner cities. This chapter also describes how Granby has become a society of the unwanted, the left-behind, and a population of rejects.

Keywords:   Granby, Liverpool, disinherited society, business management, local government, inner cities
