Abstract

This critique of the EC 2005 proposals on state aid and the implications for public services presents the historical and legal context, their impact on the expansion of private sector activity in the market for public services, a critical analysis of the proposals, and a discussion contrasting the route of encouraging competitive tendering with the possibility of exempting public services operating in the general interest.
