New at Reason: Annual Privatization Report 2011

We are pleased to announce that today marks the launch of Reason Foundation’s Annual Privatization Report 2011. Now in its 25th year of publication, the Annual Privatization Report is the world’s longest running and most comprehensive report on privatization news, developments and trends.

Readers will notice that APR 2011 features the same format as last years report, published in as a series of reports arranged by topic, rather than one consolidated report as in previous years. We expect that this will make it easier to use as a resource and find the information you’re looking for. The individual sections of APR 2011—which will be released over the next two weeks—include:

  • Federal Government Privatization
  • State Government Privatization
  • Local Government Privatization
  • Air Transportation
  • Surface Transportation
  • Education
  • Telecommunications
  • Corrections and Public Safety

We started the rollout today with the APR 2011 Federal Government Privatization section. It provides an overview of the latest federal insourcing, housing finance, private spaceflight and other news on privatization and public-private partnerships in the federal government.
