Reagan the Privatizer?

Few people understand what Reagan did (and did not) contribute to privatization like Reason’s Bob Poole. He shares his insider’s view here: Ronald Reagan was a great president. He stood up for the ideas of limited government, free trade and free-markets, and the roll-back of communism. Reagan is often associated with the global privatization revolution that took off during the 1980s, but that is largely a misconception.
