About the Authors
  • This book examines the rise and fall in the twentieth-century Western world of state-owned enterprises (SOEs), a chief instrument of state economic intervention. The authors offer historical perspectives on the origins and purpose of SOEs, their performance, and the reasons for their precipitate decline. The volume explores the theory of state business as well as the permutations and future prospects of the institution in practice. The contributors present studies of the development of state-owned enterprises in seven Western European countries and the United States.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This collection presents a historical survey of the role of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) on economics growth in eight Western countries during the 20th century...Long-term forces as well as country-specific events in Germany, Italy, Britain, France, Spain, Austria, the Netherlands, and the US are examined in great depth. The authors present excellent evidence for the reader to decide whether the recent decline in SOEs is a trend or part of a cycle where the pendulum swings from public issues to private welfare goals.
