A recent report for the Government on CDFIs called for the “development of substantial intervention rationales... only with a clear policy framework within which the sector can operate, including the range and extent of public benefit it is seeking from the sector and a recognition that the achievement of any such benefits will require investment in the sector, can [the policy] be assessed for effectiveness”.

What does that mean?

It means the Government doesnt know what it's doing. And if it doesn't know what it wants, or how much to pay for it, then God knows if it's any good.
