Private Sector vs.  Public Sector
If you were mailing an extremely important package, you'd probably trust FedEx more than the U.S. Postal Service. But why? Is it because FedEx is a private company, while the post office is run by the government? What are the differences between the "private sector" and the government sector? Why does it matter?

Politicians in the media often talk about the private and public sectors of our economy but what's the difference? And which one is more effective? The private sector is made up of businesses or corporations owned by people. The private sector includes malls, grocery stores, and your local diner. To make a profit in the private sector, businesses must earn our money by offering us products and services that we want or need. When businesses have to compete for the same dollars, prices go down because no one wants to pay twice as much for shoes at one store if you can get the same pair cheaper at another place. On the other hand, the public sector is not supported by profits. It doesn't have to compete for our dollars. Instead, the public sector uses our tax dollars to fund its services. So we pay for these programs no matter how much or how little we use them. The government decides how our tax dollars should be spent in the public sector. This makes sense for some things. For example, you probably wouldn't want firefighters or police officers competing with one another for your business. In other cases though, this means things cost more or service is worse. The U.S. Post Office has $100 billion in debt and is regularly bailed out with taxpayer money. And the Department of Motor Vehicles isn't usually known for fast, friendly service. In contrast, private companies know that if they offer poor customer service and don't make money, they'll go out of business. When comparing the private sector with the public sector, it's clear that the market-driven private sector is more efficient. When you don't have to be profitable or accountable, things tend to be more expensive and the service is worse. So when there's a choice between a private sector or a government service, think about that package you really need delivered.

Long-term investments? - Privatisation!
With its plans for „long-term investments” the German federal government and the European Commission want to open public infrastructure in an entirely new scale to private investors like funds, banks and insurance companies. They shall be able to invest more easily in motorways, water pipe systems or prisons through new types of investment funds or project bonds – despite lots of negative experience with the privatisation of such structures and the privatisation model PPP that shall be used for this purpose. The German minister for economic affairs, Sigmar Gabriel, has therefore already convened a commission and plans to make the renovation of the ailing infrastructure a profit machine for banks and insurances. The citizens pay additionally and the public sector gets indebted for decades. But hardly anyone knows about it, because the project is planned under secrecy. Sign the petition against the Gabriel Commission: http://www.gemeingut.org/gabriel-stoppen/

FII2018 - Market forces: Which economic model for privatization will prevail?
Market-based capitalism is flourishing across the world, but new twists are emerging and gaining momentum. There are now success- ful state-led models in China and hybrid public-private frameworks in the Middle East. How do these trends impact the pathways to privatization across the world, and with it, the potential to increase productivity, improve quality of services, drive economic development, strengthen the business environment and catalyze innovation? How do privatization models compare? Will different and divergent frame- works continue to emerge — or will one clear model win out? What are the implications for the global economy? Moderator: Frank Kane, Arab News • H.E. Mohammed Al-Tuwaijri, Minister of Economy, Saudi Arabia • Kirill Dmitrie, CEO Russian Direct Investment Fund • Darren Davis, Acting CEO, Ma’aden, Saudi Arabia • Bassem Awadallah, CEO, Tomoh Advisory, UAE

Social Security vs. Private Retirement
Is Social Security a good retirement plan? Economics professor Antony Davies shows that Americans stand to earn significantly less and assume more risk with Social Security than other investment options. According to Davies, taxpayers would be better off both in terms of financial security and return on investment by investing their money privately. Social security is extremely expensive, soon to be insolvent, and doesn't even offer taxpayers the most bang for their buck. For those reasons, Prof. Davies argues that it is time for the government to phase out Social Security. Davies' solution: the government should honor its obligations to current retirees while giving Americans the freedom to invest their money as they see fit. Find LearnLiberty on...

At the time we, and several other outlets, tried to speculate who it was that Musk had secured funding from, and postulated that the best fit seemed to be the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund (PIF)  Earlier today, Elon Musk made an official post on Tesla's website confirming that indeed this was the intended source of Tesla's privatization funding (https://www.tesla.com/blog/update-taking-tesla-private). But with some sources claiming that the Saudi Arabia PIF hasn't confirmed its intent to invest, it's still not clear what's going to happen next.  So, in order to help, here's what's going on thus far, what's likely to happen, and what hurdles need to be overcome for Tesla's privatization to occur.

Breaking News  - I have found old Kleinwort European Privatization shares
My wife died recently and during the process of probate and getting documents in order I discovered a long lost file.It contained the remnants of page 50, The Mail on Sunday, January 23, 1994 and papers relating to shares and warrants in Kleinwort European Privatization Investment Trust.My address at the time was in Scotland but changed about 20 years ago and I have lost track of the trust, so my question is how does one trace these shares?There may be other 87-year-old computer illiterates who have this problem and would be interested.Tanya Jefferies, of This is Money, replies: Many people have old, long-forgotten share documents tucked away, and don't know what to do when they discover them years later.Over the years companies often merge or change names so tracking down shares isn't always straightforward.We asked an investing expert from a top stockbroking firm how to investigate old shares purchased in the past and find out what they are worth now.Laith Khalaf of Hargreaves Lansdown explains how best to pursue such enquiries below.We also approached Experian to run a search on its Unclaimed Assets Register.This normally costs people £25, but it looked into this one for free and contacted you direct to discuss what you remember about your shares.If a search on its register doesn't turn up anything straight away, Experian will keep the request open for another six years.Unfortunately, in your case it wasn't able to find your investment in the first instance, but you will now remain on its books in case it discovers anything else during this period.The Mail on Sunday's library unearthed a copy of the paper from the date you gave, and the advertisement about your investment trust that appeared on page 50 is reproduced above.Laith Khalaf, senior analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, replies: Tracing old investments can be a tricky procedure, particularly if they were bought before the internet age when information was less readily available.Developments in the investment industry now mean that this is less likely to happen, as most investors now hold their investments together in one account which they can view and manage online.However, sometimes old documents pop up which relate to investments made when paper was the norm, which can present a bit more of a challenge.Usually any documentation that you have will contain the name and number of the company which administers your investment.This might be a share registrar, fund manager, or broker, depending on what kind of investment it is and who bought it. In which case it’s just a matter of calling them up and finding out what happened to your investment and how you go about selling it.Occasionally there may be a little bit of pillar to post in this endeavour seeing as over such a long time period, it’s possible the administration of the investment has changed hands.Indeed that would appear to be the case with this trust, which was wound up in the 1990s.Your investment may have been returned in cash, o AutoNews- Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/diyinvesting/article-5279033/I-old-Kleinwort-European-Privatization-shares.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

Still a Better Deal: Private Investment vs. Social Security
http://www.cato.org/multimedia/events/still-better-deal-private-investment-vs-social-security Critics of private investment of Social Security taxes have long pointed to the supposed dangers of an unstable market as creating conditions too risky to allow workers personal choice in planning for retirement. Indeed, the financial crisis is often used to bolster the argument that retirement funds are best left in the safe hands of the state, but how true is this claim? In a new Cato study, "Still a Better Deal: Private Investment vs. Social Security," Cato Senior Fellow Michael Tanner demonstrates that actual investment returns over the past 40 years show that a system of private investment will, in fact, provide significantly higher rates of return than the current Social Security system.

Privatizing Vietnam's State-Owned Companies
When Vietnam started privatizing state-owned enterprises in the 80s, the private sector, which includes local businesses, began to flourish. When Vinamilk, a dairy product company, was privatized the company expanded globally, and today are operating in more than 43 countries, surpassing $2billion revenues in 2016. That’s a lot of milk!

In the long run, it has a shortfall of $32 trillion. John Stossel says that the program is unsustainable. Young people shouldn't expect it to cover their retirement. Romina Boccia explains the Heritage Foundation's plan to allow young people to contribute to their Social Security payments via private investment accounts. Those private accounts would likely grow faster than people's contributions to Social Security, and young people could invest in "whatever floats your boat," Boccia tells Stossel. Private investment accounts have been tried in other parts of the world. When Chile started them in 1981, it was poorer than most Latin American countries. Now it's the very richest. Yet mass demonstrations denounce it for being run privately, and for companies taking some of the profit. They miss the fact that Chileans have more money for retirement than most Latin Americans only because of their private accounts. Privatization is also unpopular in America, and so are Boccia's other proposals. She and Heritage would raise the retirement age to 70 to account for rising lifespans. "When Social Security was actually founded, life expectancy was below 65," Boccia tells Stossel. Now it's 78. Stossel tells Boccia: "What you guys are pushing is the right thing to do, but it's not popular." She replies: "It is not popular, but I think people don't fully understand how these programs work." The good news is that this was the first time that when Stossel went to talk with people on the street, most people understood the problem. One man called it a "Ponzi scheme" and asked, "why not take it and invest it in the stock market and let it grow that way?" A woman summed it up well: "The country's in a deficit; there's a point where you can't pay out and go in the negative forever."

From Socialism to Capitalism: U.S. Investment in the Russian Market Economy - George Soros (1998)
The conversion of the world's largest state-controlled economy into a market-oriented economy would have been extraordinarily difficult regardless of the policies chosen. The policies chosen for this difficult transition were (1) liberalization, (2) stabilization, and (3) privatization. These policies were based on the neoliberal "Washington Consensus" of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, and U.S. Treasury Department. The programs of liberalization and stabilization were designed by Yeltsin's deputy prime minister Yegor Gaidar, a 35-year-old liberal economist inclined toward radical reform, and widely known as an advocate of "shock therapy". The partial results of liberalization (lifting price controls) included worsening already apparent hyperinflation, initially due to monetary overhang and exacerbated after the central bank, an organ under parliament, which was skeptical of Yeltsin's reforms, was short of revenue and printed money to finance its debt. This resulted in the near bankruptcy of much of Russian industry. The process of liberalization would create winners and losers, depending on how particular industries, classes, age groups, ethnic groups, regions, and other sectors of Russian society were positioned. Some would benefit by the opening of competition; others would suffer. Among the winners were the new class of entrepreneurs and black marketeers that had emerged under Mikhail Gorbachev's perestroika. But liberalizing prices meant that the elderly and others on fixed incomes would suffer a severe drop in living standards, and people would see a lifetime of savings wiped out. With inflation at double-digit rates per month as a result of printing, macroeconomic stabilization was enacted to curb this trend. Stabilization, also called structural adjustment, is a harsh austerity regime (tight monetary policy and fiscal policy) for the economy in which the government seeks to control inflation. Under the stabilization program, the government let most prices float, raised interest rates to record highs, raised heavy new taxes, sharply cut back on government subsidies to industry and construction, and made massive cuts in state welfare spending. These policies caused widespread hardship as many state enterprises found themselves without orders or financing. A deep credit crunch shut down many industries and brought about a protracted depression. The rationale of the program was to squeeze the built-in inflationary pressure out of the economy so that producers would begin making sensible decisions about production, pricing and investment instead of chronically overusing resources—a problem that resulted in shortages of consumer goods in the Soviet Union in the 1980s. By letting the market rather than central planners determine prices, product mixes, output levels, and the like, the reformers intended to create an incentive structure in the economy where efficiency and risk would be rewarded and waste and carelessness were punished. Removing the causes of chronic inflation, the reform architects argued, was a precondition for all other reforms: Hyperinflation would wreck both democracy and economic progress, they argued; they also argued that only by stabilizing the state budget could the government proceed to dismantle the Soviet planned economy and create a new capitalist Russia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Russia_(1992%E2%80%93present) Image By Wecameasromans (Own work) [CC-BY-3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Spanish/Nat Viasa, the Venezuelan flagship airline which suspended flights three weeks ago will be liquidated, officials said this week. The state privatisation agency which holds 40 percent of the company's stock stake, has ruled out any further investment. More than two thousand jobs will be lost. The state privatisation agency, Venezuelan Investment Fund --with a 40 percent stake in Viasa-- this week ruled out any possibility of further investment. The airline's debt, high operating costs, low profitability and poor prospects for a turnaround made it impossible to salvage, the fund said. President Rafael Caldera approved the liquidation. Viasa is 45 percent owned by the Spanish state airline Iberia, to which it owes most of its 151 (m) million U-S dollar debt. Viasa workers, protesting outside the company's headquarters, blamed the fund for the company's problems. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "It's 2,226 families that are now without a job. This only favours the interests of Iberia, since this company keeps all of the assets of Viasa, planes, buildings and training centres included. And the Venezuelan Investment Fund washes its hands - but it did not monitor as it should have the state interests that were 40 percent of the company for six years." SUPER CAPTION: Ramon Gomez, President of Federation of Pilots Unions The airline has lost money steadily since Iberia bought its share in 1991. Iberia and Venezuelan officials pledged in late January to try to keep the airline afloat by finding a new partner. But Planning Minister Teodoro Petkoff said last week Viasa's financial troubles were worse than officials had thought initially. The company lost 30 (m) million U-S dollars last year. Viasa suspended flights January 23 in a last-ditch attempt to stave off financial collapse. Workers marched in Maiquetia airport parading a huge Venezuelan flag and plane models. They see the closure as a betrayal. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "It is painful, it is a betrayal because in 1991, the president of the republic, who was Carlos Andrez Perez, gave Viasa to the Spanish government. We don't understand how comes that today, in 1996, Dr Caldera (actual president) , who knows all the problems we were going through --because he was our passenger many times and we would tell him about our problems -- gives Viasa to Iberia." SUPER CAPTION: Juanita Martinez, Viasa co-pilot The fund and the Spanish state-owned airline Iberia, hope to devise a plan so that workers receive severance pay and creditors are paid. Potential redundancy costs are estimated at 20 (m) million U-S dollars. The airline has 12 planes, 280 pilots, 2,226 employees and a debt of 151 (m) million US dollars.

Exclusive Interview: Large-scale privatization planned in Ukraine for 2016
Ukraine Today talks with Aivaras Abromavičius, Ukraine's Minister of Economic Development and Trade, to discuss the government's privatization plans. Aivaras Abromavičius: "First of all, I really believe that it should be priority No.1 for the economic bloc of the government and for the whole country for this year". (Among the most lucrative businesses are) the chemicals sector, the port infrastructure (we have a good amount of ports both on the river and the Black Sea coast) that should be interesting to foreigners, as well as electricity companies, machine building companies, a few companies in the agricultural sector that are about storage and production of alcohol spirit. These are about 22 different companies." There is no unanimous decision yet which companies would be sold this and nest year. We definitely believe that we should start with the Odesa Sea Side Port."

What is the risk associated with Privatized Banking?
What is the risk associated with Privatized Banking? To understand the protection your money enjoys in a Privatized Banking structure, it is important to compare it to other traditional investments. On one end of the risk continuum is any typical investment that you might have including stocks, bonds, mutual funds, commodities, currency, precious metals or real estate. All of your capital is at risk with these investments and you have no guarantee of gain. With Privatized Banking, your funds will grow at a rate that is guaranteed within the contract between you and the life insurance company. The risk associated with this is mitigated in several ways: 1) Reserves -- Life Insurance companies are required by state law to maintain adequate reserves to be sure that they can meet all financial obligations including paying claims. 2) Ratings -- Most large life insurance companies submit to a regular audit by several different financial rating agencies. These ratings reflect the financial health of the company and are made public. We have a preferred group of companies that have financial strength ratings among the highest in the industry. 3) State insurance commissioner: All 50 states have an insurance commissioner responsible for the oversight of life insurance companies operating within their jurisdiction. If an insurance company has financial trouble or their reserves become inadequate, the commissioner can take over the operation of that company to protect the best interests of the policy holders. Typically a failing or failed company would be purchased by another more successful insurance company with very little disruption to day to day operations. 4) National Organization of Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Associations (NOLHGA): State life and health insurance guaranty associations provide a safety net for their state's policyholders, ensuring that they continue to receive coverage even if their insurer is declared insolvent. Working together through NOLHGA, the guaranty associations form a national safety net, protecting insurance consumers all across America in their time of need.

Community Redevelopment ~ #Dont Know #Dont Show or #Dont Care
Florida continues to face increasing social challenges related to healthcare, crime, economic development, public safety and affordable housing, all of which require sound leadership and policy considerations.  The Florida legislature has demonstrated incredible leadership in addressing the aforementioned issues, however, much work is still needed to affect Community Redevelopment Reform.  In an effort to address a prevalent issue that most effects under served communities within our state -- "slum and blight" -- a focus should be placed on Community Redevelopment Agencies (CRA), which were legislatively created to directly impact impoverished communities. While Chapter 163, Part III, created CRA's to predominately focus on the human aspects of under served communities, over the years CRA's have actually placed a focus on utilizing resources as a government privatization investment fund for businesses.  Unfortunately, the definition of “slum & blight” has been broadly interpreted and lacks a prioritization that would allow limited CRA resources intended to help low income constituents in impoverished communities.  As an example of poor use of CRA funds, In Apopka, its CRA board, which had been inactive for several years, made its first priority the purchase of a parking lot for $200,000 with an estimated $600,000+ in repairs from a budget of $2.2 million dollars versus addressing the dilapidated housing conditions of residents within the CRA boundary.  Unfortunately, this is not unique to the City of Apopka.  Throughout Florida, the belief of CRA boards is that funds to businesses for "economic development" purposes effectively benefit those in the surrounding under served communities; but, this is a falsehood that must be corrected.  When the legislative intent of CRA's has been properly used to address slum and blight conditions of people, not businesses, they have proven to be great tools that positively impact under served communities. This is especially true in the area impacting one of its primary purposes, affordable housing. Increased affordable housing not only addresses slum and blight, but it could ultimately increase tax revenues and economic development opportunities to promote sustainable communities.    The unfortunate byproduct is what some may call gentrification, but may better be described as a misguided use of government dollars intended to improve the lives and living conditions of residents in under served communities -- not to benefit businesses. To be clear, Chapter 163, Part III was NOT established to serve as a handout to impoverished, crime ridden communities, but rather to serve as a tool to utilize existing resources to improve communities in economic despair.  To support the proper use of CRA funds, there is no prerequisite that you must reside within the affected communities in order to care about positively impacting legislation that was well intended to benefit “the least of these”.  A contribution of your talents, expertise and skill sets, i.e., legal, urban planning evaluation, etc., is welcomed.  If you are interested in assisting to seriously address this issue, please reply to [email protected]

Business Morning: Development Financing And Planned Bank Of Industry Partial Privatisation Part3
Financial analysts say the Nigerian government's planned partial privatisation of the Bank of Industry, is a commendable development that will make available more funds for development of the economy. The Chief Executive Officer of the Cowry Asset Management Limited, Johnson Chukwu, told Channels Television on Friday that the bank was limited in terms of funding due to the poor capacity of the government to provide funding. He further said that the planned partial privatisation did not come as a surprise, as the bank had over the years showed signs of limited access to funds. Mr Chukwu explained that the development would enable the institution attract private capital that could enable them expound their coverage area. "The capital will enable them increase the number of customers that they can attend to. They are constrained by the fact that they cannot access private capital," he said.
