Dr Rae Wear: ‘Joe Hockey’s privatisation offer’

Dr Rae Wear writes in The Conversation about privatisation.  ‘The Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey’s announcement that states will receive an incentive payment of 15% of asset sales if they invest the funds in infrastructure is good news for Queensland’s Newman government.  As former state Labor premier Anna Bligh found, selling assets in Queensland is a challenge, especially if the sales are sprung upon an unsuspecting public.’
