Subject: from what country are you posting spot?  I live in Australia


and your comments certainly hold true here.  More and more privatisation of public services and utilities - often at give away prices - just to get an administration in a position to balance a budget after a period of profligacy, or to enable their pork barrelling in the lead up to the next election.  Once sold into private enterprise, prices rise quickly and service drops through the floor.  Corporations here are posting record profits and paying CEOs 10s of millions in salaries and bonuses for sacking 10s of thousands of people and reducing service - all supposedly done out of responsibility to the share holders.  To me this is not progress and economic rationalism has a lot to answer for.
