Privatisation: sell off or sell out? The Australian experience, with a new introduction
Bob Walker and Betty Con Walker
Sydney University Press
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 package 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 current proposed privatisation of the electricity industry in NSW.
