Privatization: Policies, Developments and Challenges

Series: Business Issues, Competition and Entrepreneurship
BISAC: BUS069000

Chapter One of Privatization: Policies, Developments and Challenges is to discuss the elements that caused the latest and current problems in the European economies and also, the imposed privatization (expropriation of the public wealth), as the remedy. This crisis started from the US and consequently, it was expanded to all economies of the world due to the systemic risk that globalization has induced to the developed and dependent nations. Thus, this European debt crisis is a crisis of capitalism. Chapter Two analyses different factors that may explain the changes in firms’ performance after privatization in Europe. The final chapter explores how the American-based agro-industrial company Herakles Farm has thoroughly disregarded state and international laws and codes of conduct in the setting up of its contentious oil palm plantation that is largely located in-between protected areas in the ever-green forest of Southwest Cameroon.
