A Dirty Little Secret

Standard

Privatization’s dirty little secret is that it cuts out the end consumer.  For example our city privatized it’s waterworks.  Any complaints?  Too bad.  As long as the city manager is happy with his perceived savings, the public be damned.

After all, the provider gets his money from the city; he owes the citizens nothing.

Turn the electric utility over to the electric company, guess what?  You get charged to pay your bill by credit card.

When your politicians talk about “privatization” providing savings, ask them where the consumer’s voice is.  The voters do not elect the board of directors of a company.  Therefore, they have no voice.
