New episode of Pocket Economics podcast

Privatisation used to be all the rage. But now state capitalism is back in fashion, at least in some quarters. Which of these two approaches delivers better results?

In the new episode of our ‘Pocket Economics’ podcast, we discuss privatisation, state capitalism and state ownership with Professor William Megginson of the University of Oklahoma.

Does privatisation always benefit the economy and living standards? What are the pros and cons of state-owned enterprises?

Listen to Svitlana Pyrkalo in conversation with Professor Megginson.
