Larry Reed returns on February 4, 2008 to speak on Privatization

First Published: 2008-01-10

Mark your calendar. Lawrence W. Reed, president of the Mackinac Center for public Policy in Michigan, USA is returning to address donors, friends and members of The Nassau Institute on Monday, February 4, 2008 at 7:00pm.

You might remember his excellent presentation titled The Seven Principles of Sound Public Policy from our May 2007, Conference.

This year his address will be  "The Promise of Privatization"  (what it is, who’s doing it, why it works, how to do it so it won’t fail) at the British Colonial Hilton.

In a preparatory e-mail discussion Mr. Reed advised:

"Privatization, in its broadest sense, is the transfer of assets or services from the tax-supported and politicized public sector to the entrepreneurial initiative and competitive markets of the private sector. The superiority of the latter is now approaching the status of undisputed, conventional wisdom: the private sector exacts a toll from the inefficient for their poor performance, compels the service provider or asset owner to concern himself with the wishes of customers, and spurs a dynamic, never-ending pursuit of excellence — all without any of the political baggage that haunts the public sector as elements of its very nature."

The price per ticket is $60 for dinner. There will be a cash bar.
