Description

This work examines several different aspects of the major "public" services supplied by the private sector in developing countries: education, electricity, health, telecommunications, urban transportation, and water and sewerage. The author examines the problems, as well as the potential, of private sector involvement, offering in conclusion a discussion of interrelationships between the sectors, obstacles to private sector involvement, and the problem of price equality. The book also includes commentary on the role of the government in relation to each type of service provision.show more
