Why is it that most privatizations fail to meet public expectations on delivery? The short answer is that privatization are about delivery to the government and its contractors; not the final customer or, as we used to be known, the citizen. Sure lets pave over Palmachim. Let's blame the migrant workers too. Let's sell off all public lands and watch as private land owners "hoard" their product and behave in exactly the same way as the ILA. Or, perhaps, Shtrasler prefers to only deal with the mythic qualities of neo-liberalism and not its actual functioning. A good start for Israel wouldn't be more privatization but actually sane policies on tax expenditure; how about taking the billions squandered on settlements on building an underground and inter-city rail network for the central region that runs to the late hours so that young people can live in the suburbs and still enjoy the city night life. You know like in other big cities where the infrastructure was PUBLICLY funded..... and I'm talking about New York and Chicago here.
