  • Demerits of Privatization
    • Performance . A democratically elected government is accountable to the people through a legislature, Congress or Parliament, and is motivated to safeguarding the assets of the nation. The profit motive may be subordinated to social objectives.
    • Improvements . the government is motivated to performance improvements as well run businesses contribute to the State's revenues.
    • Corruption . Government ministers and civil servants are bound to uphold the highest ethical standards, and standards of probity are guaranteed through codes of conduct and declarations of interest.
  • Demerits of Privatization
    • Accountability . The public does not have any control or oversight of private companies.
    • Civil-liberty concerns . A democratically elected government is accountable to the people through a parliament, and can intervene when civil liberties are threatened.
  • Demerits of Privatization
    • Goals . The government may seek to use state companies as instruments to further social goals for the benefit of the nation as a whole.
    • Capital . Governments can raise money in the financial markets most cheaply to re-lend to state-owned enterprises.
    • Lack of market discipline . Governments have chosen to keep certain companies/industries under public ownership because of their strategic importance or sensitive nature
  • Demerits of Privatization
    • Cuts in essential services . If a government-owned company providing an essential service (such as the water supply) to all citizens is privatized, its new owner(s) could lead to the abandoning of the social obligation to those who are less able to pay, or to regions where this service is unprofitable.
    • Natural monopolies . Privatization will not result in true competition if a natural monopoly exists.
    • Concentration of wealth . Profits from successful enterprises end up in private, often foreign, hands instead of being available for the common good
  • Demerits of Privatization
    • Political influence . Governments may more easily exert pressure on state-owned firms to help implementing government policy.
    • Downsizing . Private companies often face a conflict between profitability and service levels, and could over-react to short-term events.
    • Profit . Private companies do not have any goal other than to maximize profits. A private company will serve the needs of those who are most willing (and able) to pay, as opposed to the needs of the majority, and are thus anti-democratic.
