Abstract/ Summary

This briefing paper was an update to an earlier publication by the Bureau of Labor Education on the “pitfalls and problems” of privatization (1998). As with the previous paper, this update focused primarily on privatization as it concerns the provision of public services by states and localities in the U.S., rather than on federal levels or in other countries.
