Deliberate Choice: Public Good or Marketplace


Which public tasks, (partly) funded by government taxes, should be executed by governmental agencies and which should be executed by business organizations? is the central theme of this book. A conceptual model, constructed of three perspectives, is presented.
1st – Public execution and the Free market are treated as counterparts, mixed combinations of Public assignment and Business execution exist in between. Six different types are described.
2nd – Human conduct, both in public and private activity, consists of five elements: Will, Capability (Resources, Knowledge), Thought, Activity, Legality.
3d – Public tasks are defined at four aggregate levels: individual rights, collective systems, national security and cultural heritage and international obligations, specially fostering sustainable development.
These are the three perspectives that are combined in the conceptual model.
