In the public interest? : privatization and public sector reform by Brendan Martin( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State provision of public services and government management of the economy have been under relentless assault since the early 1980s. As this book shows in fascinating detail, privatization, commercialization and deregulation have become the watchwords of public sector reform worldwide. Brendan Martin charts this global phenomenon and its effects both on those working in the public sectors and on people dependent on public provision. Privatization and structural adjustment are not delivering better public services or improved economic prospects in the North or the South. What is needed, the author argues, is a new approach which transcends the outdated dichotomy of private versus public

Fighting for public services : better lives, a better world by Fritz Keller( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Public Services International, the global federation for public sector trade unions, celebrates its centennial in 2007, for which it was agreed to commission a history book." "The history of PSI looks at the major political events of the twentieth century, with a view to seeing what kinds of challenges these presented to PSI and its affiliated unions. How did PSI and public sector unions respond to the two world wars, to the rise of fascism, the challenges of the cold war, the potential offered in national independence struggles in the developing countries emerging from Northern colonialism? How did PSI move from being a federation of European municipal/utility unions, dominated by men, into an organisation with mainly female membership, whose affiliates are mainly in the South?"--BOOK JACKET

TISA versus public services by Scott Sinclair( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a virtual alphabet soup of new trade and investment agreements under negotiation - the TPP, TTIP, CETA, PA, TISA and more. Despite the bewildering array of acronyms, all of these negotiations tend to pursue a similar, corporate-driven agenda. Each agreement becomes the floor for the next, in a state of perpetual negotiation and re-negotiation. Hard-won exceptions to protect public services or insulate financial services regulations from investor-state challenge, for example, become targets for elimination in the next set of talks. Moreover, this frenzy of negotiating activity remains cloaked in a veil of secrecy. The negotiating dynamic is fundamentally skewed towards corporate interests. Public interest advocates seeking to exempt essential sectors or key public policies from these treaties must win every time, while the corporate lobbyists targeting these policies need win only once. With the stroke of a pen, a single neo-liberal government can essentially lock all future governments into a policy straitjacket"--

L'ACS contre les services publics by Scott Sinclair( )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Un véritable imbroglio de nouveaux accords sur le commerce et l'investissement est en cours de négociation - TPP, TTIP, AECG, PA, ACS, pour ne citer qu'eux. Malgré cette déroutante panoplie d'acronymes, tous ces pourparlers ont tendance à poursuivre un programme similaire, dirigé par les entreprises. Chaque accord sert de base au suivant, dans un mouvement perpétuel de négociation et renégociation. Les rares exceptions durement acquises visant à protéger les services publics ou à exclure les réglementations sur les services financiers de ce conflit entre investisseurs et états, par exemple, deviennent la cible des pourparlers suivants. Par ailleurs, cette frénésie de négociations se développe dans le plus grand secret. Cette dynamique de négociation s'oriente manifestement au profit des intérêts des entreprises. Les partisans de l'intérêt public qui cherchent à exclure de ces traités des secteurs essentiels ou des politiques publiques cruciales doivent gagner à chaque reprise, alors que les défenseurs des entreprises qui ciblent ces politiques n'ont besoin que d'une seule victoire. D'un simple coup de crayon, un seul gouvernement néolibéral peut en quelque sorte enfermer tous les gouvernements futurs dans un carcan politique"--
Corrosive reform : failing health systems in Eastern Europe by Carl Warren Afford( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All across Eastern Europe, health services plunged into crisis in the 1990s. Steep cuts in budgets, training and investment and, in some cases, official disinterest, created a pervasive system failure that has had terrible consequences, for patients and their families, for communities, and for those who have been required to work in the many parts of health services. Based on research conducted by the ILO Socio-Economic Security Programme and Public Services International, the book paints a vivid picture of the dedication and professionalism of health-care staff in worsening conditions, in whi
