The challenges of privatization:an international analysis
- About Author
This book provides the first systematic empirical analysis of privatization processes worldwide to explain how and why governments privatize. Privatization is shown to be a difficult process, shaped by political preferences and budgetary constraints, often pursued in the absence of suitable economics and legal institutions. As a result, in most cases, the process has been partial and incomplete, so that private ownership tends to coexist with public control.
