Several government economic policies have been the source of considerable disagreement since 1979. One of the most notable has been the government’s extensive policy of privatisation. It has aroused considerable passions, both in favour of the policy and against it. As is quite often the case in such debates, the economics of the issue is frequently left trailing in the wake of the political furore that the issue creates. The purpose of this chapter is to examine the relevant economic theories and to consider what they appear to suggest regarding privatisation both in theory and how it has been implemented in the United Kingdom.
