Privatisiert die USA!

Von | 7. Juli 2016

The American economy is sluggish, the government is running large deficits, and the public is frustrated with the poor performance of federal bureaucracies. One reform that can tackle all of these problems is privatizing federal businesses and assets. This study discusses a dozen advantages of privatization and describes government activities that should be moved to the private sector. A privatization revolution has swept the world since the 1980s. Following the United Kingdom’s lead, governments in more than 100 countries have transferred thousands of state-owned businesses to the private sector. Railroads, airports, energy companies, postal services, and other businesses valued at more than $3 trillion have been privatized. Governments of both the political right and left have unloaded state-owned businesses. Despite the global success of privatization, reforms have largely bypassed our own federal government. Indeed, many activities that have been transferred to the private sector abroad remain in government hands in this country. That creates an opportunity for U.S. policymakers to learn from foreign privatization and enact proven reforms here. (Studie hier)

    Interessanter Artikel! Lässt sich knusprig an. Aber warum muss der um Meilen länger sein als der Amazonas oder der Mississippi? Wer soll das an einem Arbeitstag-Morgen lesen? Nå, vielleicht auf d’Nåcht, Herr Direktor.

    Rennziege,

    Besagter “Artikel” ist deklariertermaßen eine Studie, deren Präludium zugleich ein Executive Summary bildet.
