Challenging the prevailing view of privatization, this book
analyzes the state of privatization around the world and offers
policy suggestions. It includes original material of an analytical,
empirical, and case study nature on the theory and practice of
privatization, its relationship with the globalization of capital,
its political and ideological underpinnings, its political, social,
and economic consequences around the world. Its originality,
currency, and critical perspectives make it a unique source for a
wide variety of audiences.
The book's opening chapters deal with an extensive theoretical
introduction followed by discussions on contracting out, public
enterprise reform, and UN-led evaluations of contracting
performance. In part two, the book turns to privatization and its
flaws in major industrialized nations, including the United States,
France, Germany, United Kingdom, and Australia. Part three analyzes
privatization and its effects on policy and administration in Asian
and Middle Eastern countries, including Post-revolutionary Iran,
India, Singapore, Hong Kong-China, and Arab developing countries.
Arguing that privatization is a poor policy with many dangers, the
book offers suggestions for serious reform of public enterprise
management and for alternatives to privatization.
