 PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS: THE PRIVATE SECTOR AND INNOVATION IN EDUCATION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Private provision of infrastructure may be one of the more politically acceptable methods of private-sector involvement in education, since neither teachers nor students are directly involved.
While teachers in private practice, at least at this stage, must be licensed by the state, alternative certification programs have increased from eight in 1983 to 34 in 1989.
Union opposition to privatized instruction is a major hurdle, although it appears that by renaming teachers as "mentors" and programs as "curriculum enhancement," opportunities exist for private-practice teachers and firms, such as WIST and Ombudsman.

 MNSPF Private Sector Home
As the private sector expands, the role of the state is changing from that of a key player toward a more indirect role, that of facilitating the development of competitive private markets.
The formal private sector in MNA countries has generally been concentrated in a small number of large firms which have benefited from protective policies, and in a large number of small and medium enterprises which often account for much of employment but have little access to formal finance, markets and government support programs.
To accelerate the emergence of more dynamic private sectors, greater attention must be given to microeconomic reforms to complement macroeconomic reforms.

 Grandfather Government Growth Report by MWHodges
Think of the total economy as a pie, divided into two economic slices (the government sector share and the pure private sector share), where the whole pie is the total national income.
From chart #1 to chart #2, we have observed how the private sector's share of the economic pie was reduced by 10 points - as a result of socialization up to 1947.
It seems to make sense it would be best for their future if the relative size of the private sector were increased by significantly downsizing government's share, for a change - toward a size envisioned by Thomas Jefferson.

Private, for-profit CRM seems to have started late in the Southwest, perhaps because of the strength of the institutional CRM programs (the CRM era arguably began with a 1950 museum-based pipeline archaeology project in Arizona and New Mexico, and with the subsequent establishment of a permanent highway salvage program in New Mexico in 1954).

 Property Rights and the Informal Sector
In countries with large informal sectors, business activities go unrecorded, taxes are not paid, opportunities for corruption are rampant, and a significant percentage of citizens are not able to participate in public policymaking.  Government-made barriers to establishing and operating a business distract these would-be entrepreneurs from gainful and productive business activities. 
In order to bridge the gap between the informal sector and the formal economy, it is important to realize that informality is a symptom of underlying institutional problems.
 To harness the wealth of the informal sector and merge the two economies, governments must design programs and offer incentives that encourage entrepreneurs to join the formal economy.  One of the easiest ways to do this is by simplifying the business registration process.
