Free Market Foundation on Privatisation

by Dambisa Dube
Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung South Africa (KAS), together with our partner organization Free Market Foundation South Africa (FMF), held an expert exchange on the 8th of November with the theme of Infrastructure Privatization aimed at businesspeople, academics, and representatives of civil society.

This engagement posed the important question of how - against the backdrop of state failure in the provision of basic services (such as electricity and water supply) - the principle of privatization can be applied more strongly.

 

The FMF have also released the first video as part of a 3 part series on privatisation titled 'Could privatisation help to solve the problems affecting South Africa's failing state owned enterprises?' Head of Policy at the Free Market Foundation (FMF), Martin van Staden speaks with economist Dr Christoph Klein about the FMF's ongoing 'Privatisation in Practice' project. Martin and Christoph debunk the common myths and misconceptions surrounding privatisation in the South African context.
