USA offers great photo opportunities. This is in part due to the integrated National Park system that has allowed easy & universal access from the days of Ansel Adams to the present.

From the home of Capitalism it is perhaps very telling that it would legislate against any commercial exploitation of one of their country’s most important assets: natural beauty.

Over the course of more than 150 years, a once-radical idea has evolved into a cohesive national parks system, with a sometimes conflicting two part-mission: to make the parks accessible to all and to preserve them for future generations.

Is there anything else we could learn?

Why has the might of McKinsey not been able to privatise some of the US National Parks? Should there not be Time Shares in these most beautiful of places?

Could our National Health Service be like the US National Park?
Providing world class medical care to all and preserving it for future generations!

California has Yosemite and it is also the home of Kaiser Permanente.

It is amazing how planners often overlook the most important aspect of why an organisation such as Kaiser Permanente is a success. We need to now look at why Kaiser Permanente is such a success.       New York Times
