From transportation to energy, and everything in between, should the government invest money in as many promising projects as possible? Or would that actually doom many of those ventures to failure? Burt Folsom, historian and professor at Hillsdale College, answers those questions by drawing on the fascinating history of the race to build America's railroads and airplanes.

A company going bankrupt is not news. But Solyndra was not just any company. Its biggest “investor” was the federal government which had given it $500 million dollars. That was news. But, really, it shouldn’t have been. If history is any guide, it was quite predictable. The government is a very poor investor. And always has been. There are countless examples, but two should serve our purpose here. After the Civil War, American leaders were anxious to bind the country’s North, South, East, and West regions together with transcontinental railroads. Congress therefore gave massive federal aid to build the Union Pacific, the Central Pacific, and later the Northern Pacific Railroads. But all three of these roads had huge financial problems. The Union Pacific, for example, was mired in financial scandal from its inception, went bankrupt several times, and had to rebuild large sections of track thanks to shoddy construction practices. At that same time, James J. Hill, with no federal aid whatsoever, built a railroad from St. Paul to Seattle -- the Great Northern. How was Hill able to do with private funds what the Union Pacific failed to do with a gift of tens of millions of federal dollars? The starting point is incentives. The Union Pacific was paid by the government for each mile of road it built. It was in the railroad’s interest not to build the road straight. The more miles it took the UP to cross Nebraska, for example, the more money it made. Hill, by contrast, used his own capital. To make a profit, he had to build his Great Northern Railroad sturdy and straight. Hill’s company remained in business for almost a hundred years until 1970 when it merged with other railroads. The original Union Pacific, riddled with corruption and numerous other financial misdeeds, including the wholesale bribery of public officials, went broke within ten years. The story of the airplane is even more stark. By the opening of the twentieth century, the major nations of Europe and America were frantically at work trying to invent a flying machine. The first nation to do so would have a huge military and commercial advantage. In fact, leading American politicians of the day, such as Teddy Roosevelt, President William McKinley, and others argued that building an airplane was a national emergency. There was no time, they argued, to wait for private industry to get the job done. The government needed to pick the best aeronautics expert and give him the money he needed. That expert was Samuel Langley, the president of the prestigious Smithsonian Institution and holder of honorary degrees from Harvard, Yale, Oxford, and Cambridge. Langley was already an accomplished inventor and he had written a highly praised book Experiments in Aerodynamics. Federal officials gave Langley funds for two trial flights. He immediately set to work. His theory was that his plane needed to be thrust into the air from a houseboat on the Potomac River. The big engine on the plane would then propel it through air for several minutes. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/why-private-investment-works-govt-investment-doesnt

If you were mailing an extremely important package, you'd probably trust FedEx more than the U.S. Postal Service. But why?

Politicians in the media often talk about the private and public sectors of our economy but what's the difference? And which one is more effective? The private sector is made up of businesses or corporations owned by people. The private sector includes malls, grocery stores, and your local diner. To make a profit in the private sector, businesses must earn our money by offering us products and services that we want or need. When businesses have to compete for the same dollars, prices go down because no one wants to pay twice as much for shoes at one store if you can get the same pair cheaper at another place. On the other hand, the public sector is not supported by profits. It doesn't have to compete for our dollars. Instead, the public sector uses our tax dollars to fund its services. So we pay for these programs no matter how much or how little we use them. The government decides how our tax dollars should be spent in the public sector. This makes sense for some things. For example, you probably wouldn't want firefighters or police officers competing with one another for your business. In other cases though, this means things cost more or service is worse. The U.S. Post Office has $100 billion in debt and is regularly bailed out with taxpayer money. And the Department of Motor Vehicles isn't usually known for fast, friendly service. In contrast, private companies know that if they offer poor customer service and don't make money, they'll go out of business. When comparing the private sector with the public sector, it's clear that the market-driven private sector is more efficient. When you don't have to be profitable or accountable, things tend to be more expensive and the service is worse. So when there's a choice between a private sector or a government service, think about that package you really need delivered.

"Anybody that drives around Southern California can tell you the infrastructure is falling apart," says Joel Kotkin, a fellow of urban studies at Chapman University and author of the book The New Class Conflict. "And then we’re going to give money so a bunch of corporate executives can watch a football game eight times a year? It’s absurd." When the Inglewood City Council voted unanimously to approve a $1.8 billion stadium plan on February 24th, hundreds of football fans in attendance cheered for the prospect of a team finally returning to the Los Angeles area. On it’s face, the deal for the city of Inglewood is unprecedented—Rams owner Stan Kroenke has agreed to finance construction of the stadium entirely with private funds. The deal makes the stadium one of the most expensive facilities ever built and is an oddity in the sports world, where most stadiums require millions in public dollars to be constructed. And while the city still waits to hear if it will indeed inherit an NFL team, the progress on the new privately-funded Inglewood stadium has set off a bidding war between other cities that are offering up millions in public subsidies to keep (or attract) pro-sports franchises to their area. St. Louis has proposed a billion dollar waterfront stadium financed with $400 million in tax money to keep the Rams in Missouri. And the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders have unveiled a plan to turn a former landfill in Carson, California, into a $1.7 billion stadium to keep the Rams from encroaching on their turf. While full details of the plan have yet to be released, it’s been reported that the financing would be similar to the San Francisco 49er’s deal in Santa Clara, which saw the team receive $621 million in construction loans paid for with public money. Even the fiscally conservative Scott Walker is not immune to the stadium spending craze. The Wisconsin governor wants to allocate $220 million in public bonds to keep the Milwaukee Bucks basketball franchise in the area. Walker has dubbed the financing scheme as the "Pay Their Way" plan, but professional sports teams rarely pay their fair share when it comes to stadiums and instead use public money to generate private revenue. Pacific Standard magazine has reported that in the last 20 years, the U.S. has opened 101 new sports facilities and stadium finance experts say that almost all of them have received public funding totaling billions of dollars. Politicians generally rationalize this expense by stating that stadiums will generate economic revenue and job opportunities for the city, but Kotkin says those promises are rarely realized. "I think this is sort of a fanciful approach towards economic development instead of building really good jobs. And except for the construction, the jobs created by stadia are generally low wage occasional work." "The important thing that we’ve forgotten is 'What is the purpose of a government?'" asks Kotkin. "Cities instead of fixing their schools, fixing their roads or fixing their sewers or fixing their water are putting money into ephemera like stadia. And in the end, what’s more important?"

Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, also known as MBS, has driven Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth vehicle, Public Investment Fund (PIF), to new heights in 2018. READ: PIF is GCC's largest project developer (https://bit.ly/2Enq6sF) As Saudi Arabia drives forward with its Vision 2030 economic diversification mandate, it is important to understand the role played by the Crown Prince, as chairman of PIF, towards achieving these goals. The centrepiece of PIF's work in 2018 has undoubtedly been Neom, the mega city that was launched at the Future Investment Initiative conference held in Riyadh in 2017. At the second iteration of the conference in October 2018, Neom's team revealed that the $500-billion (SAR $1.9 trillion) project's construction was progressing as planned. Not far behind are the Amaala and Qiddiya gigaprojects, both aimed at attracting millions of riyals through tourism in Saudi Arabia. PIF is leading both these programmes. In this video, Neha Bhatia and Oscar Rousseau, editor and deputy editor of Construction Week, explore the achievements recorded by Saudi Arabia's PIF in 2018.

Speaker: Frank Adamson, Senior Policy and Research Analyst, Stanford University Discussant: Manos Antoninis, Senior Policy Analyst, Global Education Monitoring Report Moderator: Suzanne Grant Lewis, IIEP Director Policy-makers worldwide are trying to figure how best to organize, govern, and support their education systems. Some countries approach these issues with public investment in teacher professionalization and a focus on equity of student outcomes, while others use a market-based, privatization approach to education. The new book, Global Education Reform, documents the ideologically and educationally distinctive approaches three pairs of countries have taken in structuring their education systems: Chile and Cuba; Sweden and Finland; the United States and Canada. The analysis concludes that the education sector is better served by a public investment approach that supports each and every child than by a market-based, competition approach that creates winners and losers. This volume explains how and why some children can lose in a privatized system and makes recommendations to ensure that all children receive equitable, high-quality educational opportunities.

"There are more young people who had to leave Italy to look for a job than immigrants that have come to look for a job in our country," President of CGIL Maurizio Landini said. "What future does a country have if young people have to leave the country to find work?" Dozens more also joined the demonstration to protest against the country's Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

Free Real Estate Investing Course -- http://bit.ly/2FvxGQE Subscribe for more videos -- http://bit.ly/2BKP2u4 If you're interested in real estate investing, but you don't have enough money, then REITs may be a good option. REIT stands for Real Estate Investment Trust. A REIT is essentially crowdfunding for real estate and is a great option for beginners. When it comes to investing in REITs, you have 2 options: Public REITs or Private REITs. Each type has its pros and cons so it's important that you conduct thorough research before investing in either. In this video, I'm going to explain the difference between public and private REITs and explain the difference between the two types of investments. Hope this helps!

In part 2 of this INET interview, Alexander Field discusses the importance of the private sector working with the public sector to innovation and productivity growth during the Depression era. And today, while information technology has changed the world and helped revive economic growth in the 1990s, it may not compare to the productivity growth of the 1920s and 30s as its benefits are too narrowly based.

Privatization, also spelled privatisation (in British English), may have several meanings. Primarily, it is the process of transferring ownership of a business, enterprise, agency, public service, or public property from the public sector (a government) to the private sector, either to a business that operates for a profit or to a nonprofit organization. It may also mean the government outsourcing of services or functions to private firms, e.g. revenue collection, law enforcement, and prison management. Privatization has also been used to describe two unrelated transactions. The first is the buying of all outstanding shares of a publicly traded company by a single entity, making the company privately owned. This is often described as private equity. The second is a demutualization of a mutual organization or cooperative to form a joint-stock company. There are five main methods of privatization: 1. Share issue privatization (sip) – selling shares on the stock market. 2. Asset sale privatization – selling an entire organization (or part of it) to a strategic investor, usually by auction or by using the Treuhand model. 3. Voucher privatization – distributing shares of ownership to all citizens, usually for free or at a very low price. 4. Privatization from below – Start-up of new private businesses in formerly socialist countries. 5. Management buyout or Employee Buyout (MEBO) – distributing shares for free or at a very low price to workers or management in the organization. Choice of sale method is influenced by the capital market, political, and firm-specific factors. SIPs are more likely to be used when capital markets are more developed. Share issues can broaden and deepen domestic capital markets, boosting liquidity and (potentially) economic growth, but if the capital markets are insufficiently developed it may be difficult to find enough buyers, and transaction costs (e.g. underpricing required) may be higher. For this reason, many governments elect for listings in the more developed and liquid markets, for example Euronext, and the London, New York and Hong Kong stock exchanges. As a result of higher political and currency risk deterring foreign investors, asset sales occur more commonly in developing countries and transition countries. Voucher privatization has mainly occurred in the transition economies of Central and Eastern Europe, such as Russia, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia. Additionally, Privatization from below is/has been an important type of economic growth in transition economies. A substantial benefit of share or asset-sale privatizations is that bidders compete to offer the highest price, creating income for the state in addition to tax revenues. Voucher privatizations, on the other hand, could be a genuine transfer of assets to the general population, creating a real sense of participation and inclusion. If the transfer of vouchers is permitted, a market in vouchers could be created, with investors offering to pay money for them. Some privatization transactions can be interpreted as a form of a secured loan and are criticized as a "particularly noxious form of governmental debt". In this interpretation, the upfront payment from the privatization sale corresponds to the principal amount of the loan, while the proceeds from the underlying asset correspond to secured interest payments – the transaction can be considered substantively the same as a secured loan, though it is structured as a sale. This interpretation is particularly argued to apply to recent municipal transactions in the United States, particularly for fixed term, such as the 2008 sale of the proceeds from Chicago parking meters for 75 years. It is argued that this is motivated by "politicians' desires to borrow money surreptitiously", due to legal restrictions on and political resistance to alternative sources of revenue, viz, raising taxes or issuing debt.

With its $75 billion portfolio, Chiang describes how California sets the example for holding partners to high ethical standards and for public investing in policies that lead to better lives for its residents, reductions in income inequality, and effective responses to climate change. Chiang is the 2017 speaker for Michael Nacht Distinguished Lecture in Politics and Public Policy presented by the Goldman School of Public Policy and the Berkeley Forum at UC Berkeley.

Saudi Arabia has unveiled an ambitious plan to reduce the kingdom's dependence on oil and transform it into a global investment power. Deputy Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman announced that the kingdom would raise the capital of its public investment fund to $2 trillion from $160 billion to facilitate the diversification process. He said the country expects state oil company Saudi Aramco to be valued at more than $2 trillion after putting up 5 percent of the oil company for sale through an initial public offering. At the centre of the plan is the restructuring of the Public Investment Fund. The fund will become a hub for Saudi investment abroad, by raising some of the money through selling shares in Aramco. The "Vision 2030" plans to raise non-oil revenue to $160 billion by 2020 and $267 billion by 2030 from $43.6 billion last year. But the plan gave few details on how this would be implemented, something that has caused problems for previous reforms.

Global Education Reform: How Privatization and Public Investment Influence Education Outcomes Dr. Frank Adamson, Stanford University, USA [email protected] Dr. Björn Åstrand, Karlstad University, Sweden [email protected] For more information, go to http://mpeducation.weebly.com/ We will present key ideas from our forthcoming book - Global Education Reform: How Privatization and Public Investment Influence Education Outcomes - which offers a comparative analysis of policies and outcomes in countries pursuing either market-based, privatizing or government-based, public investment approaches to education. The book spans six countries organized into three geographically proximate pairs: 1) Chile and Cuba, 2) Sweden and Finland, and 3) Canada and the United States. Each pair contains one country trending towards privatization while the other employs a public investment approach. Authors from each country (except for Cuba) provide individual case studies. We will synthesize these in framing (introductory) and comparative chapters that reveal the higher levels of equity and outcomes occurring in countries using the public investment approach to education.
