Греция говорит, что необходимо активизировать приватизацию

Греция должна активизировать свою программу приватизации, сказал в среду заместитель министра финансов Джордж Чоулиаракис. Приватизация стала основной составляющей международной финансовой помощи страны с 2010 года, но она принесла лишь 3,4 млрд. евро доходов из-за политического сопротивления и волокиты. "Нам нужно многое сделать, особенно улучшить бизнес-среду ... быть более настойчивыми в продвижении прямых инвестиций, ускорении базы программы приватизации", - сказал Чоулиаракис на конференции в Афинах. Греция намерена привлечь 4,4 млрд. евро по программе приватизации в 2017-18 годах. Крупные лоты на этот год включают продажу 66-процентной доли в газовой сети страны DESFA и 67-процентную долю в ее втором по величине порту Салоники. Агентство приватизации страны также ищет консультантов по использованию государственных акций в семи крупных компаниях, включая государственную энергетическую корпорацию Public Power Corp., Международный аэропорт Афин и телекоммуникационного оператора OTE.

Some Notes on Eric Miller's Review of "Public Intellectuals in the Global Arena"...

Is the liberal democratic tradition up to the challenge—the challenge of disciplining an economic order that exists not to prosper democracy but itself?
