Privatisation: sell off or sell out? explains that privatisation, in its various forms, is leading to an erosion of public accountability and, by default, a radical change in the role of government in Australia.
Privatisation: sell off or sell out? was originally published by ABC Books in 2000. This product includes the original 2000 title, plus a separately bound new introduction.
The new introduction updates the cases from the book, and looks at what things have changed and what have not. There is particular reference to the privatisation of the electricity industry in NSW.
Betty Con Walker is an economist with experience in private and public sectors, including the New South Wales Premier's department and the New South Wales treasury.
