Rethinking Municipal Privatization (New Political Economy) by Oliver D. Cooke

By Oliver D. Cooke

This booklet examines the most high-profile municipal privatizations—the privatization of recent York City’s crucial Park. The monetary quandary of the Nineteen Seventies verified the political and cultural starting for privatizations, that have been justified at the foundation of accelerating potency. notwithstanding, as Cooke demonstrates, those justifications have been intentionally unaware of the social and monetary implication of privatization. This attention-grabbing account strikes past the hackneyed seasoned- as opposed to anti-privatization debate by means of reconceptualizing the park’s privatization as an ensemble of contradictory category results. It additionally highlights the titanic theoretical and coverage area for extensively reconsidering and rethinking privatization tactics in either the municipal and worldwide contexts.
