Privatization is now commonplace throughout the world: in communist, socialist, and capitalist countries; in developed and developing countries; in democracies and dictatorships. It is no longer a partisan or ideological issue, but rather a pragmatic and increasingly routine approach to governing and to managing public services. In short, privatization, properly carried out, works well and produces benefits. It requires a different role for government, and it calls for more brain cells and fewer muscle cells in the public service.
