The State Sector

  • David Reisman


Socialisation is a spectrum and not a point. Even where the State writes no cover and provides no service, still it can guide and direct by means of compulsion, subsidisation and regulation to such an extent that the de jur? nationalisation of the property rights will frequently appear unnecessary to ensure the pursuit of public objectives by private organisations. Yet sometimes the public sector makes a conscious choice to expropriate or to duplicate the capitalist market in order the better to serve the public interest. National health protection is a case in point.
