Synopsis: This unit traces the development, evolution, reform and privatisation of public enterprise. The unit takes several different perspectives, including those of history, economics, sociology and politics as well as the consumer perspective, and contributions from each are noted. The challenge of the unit for students is in achieving greater awareness of some of the fundamental drivers of privatisation, appreciating the more useful theoretical frameworks for assessing privatisation performance, and gaining a better understanding of privatisation as a key plank of public policy and public administration reform in the 1990s.
