A number of important elements of Conservative thinking during the 1970s can be drawn together under the theme of ownership. This chapter examines the development of policy in relation to the nationalised industries and housing in particular. By the 1970s the Conservatives had long been clear that they saw public ownership as undesirable in principle and that economic activity belonged predominantly in the private sector. They had consistently resisted the idea of more industries being nationalised and regularly looked forward to denationalisation

Chapter 3 Why public ownership? Public ownership need not be ruled out as a tool of economic ­policy and strategy on efficiency grounds, but why would we want to deploy it anyway? There are countless reasons why a local community, region, or nation–state might want to pursue public ownership – many based on local customs, culture, and priorities. The 2015 report by PricewaterhouseCoopers discussed above notes that ‘the motivations for state ownership can wax and wane over time, but … SOEs are likely to remain an important instrument in any government toolbox

Chapter 4 Public ownership and alternative system models Public ownership is prevalent in all contemporary political-economic systems, but it is also to be found in many if not most modern visions and models of alternative political-economic systems – especially those emanating from the left of the political spectrum. What exactly should be the role of public ownership in any vision or visions of a desirable next system beyond corporate capitalism and state socialism? It is worth stepping back for a moment to situate this discussion in the traditions of radical

Chapter 1 Public ownership in the United States and around the world Despite more than four decades of pressure for privatization, ­public ownership in practice remains incredibly common – and popular – on the ground throughout the developed and developing world. A 2014 report by the OECD, for instance, found that in just 34 countries there were 2,111 state owned enterprises with around 6 million employees and a total value of over $2 trillion (this was only at the central or federal level of government. Local and regional publicly owned enterprises were not

Chapter 5 Toward a framework of public ownership for the twenty-first century In order to begin bridging the gap between real-world experience with public ownership and its potential role in future political-economic systemic alternatives, it is useful to develop a framework whereby public ownership can be expanded and scaled up from existing levels across a variety of economic sectors. The aim at this stage is not to articulate the full workings of a systemic alternative to capitalism – as we have seen, there are many such models, starting from a variety of

Foreign aid, donor coordination and recipient ownership 7 Foreign aid, donor coordination and recipient ownership in EU–Africa relations Maurizio Carbone The first decade of the 2000s was characterised by a number of important changes in the foreign aid policy of the European Union (EU). The new century started with the adoption of the Cotonou Agreement in June 2000 (European Union, 2000), which introduced a radical overhaul of the aid pillar in the long-­standing partnership between the EU and the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) group of countries. The

9 New models of ownership and governance Cliff Mills and Ruth Yeoman Two hundred years ago in the United Kingdom, the concept of mutual enterprise was little known and still in its infancy. However, from the basis of its friendly society roots the concept of mutuality was developing rapidly in the face of increasingly harsh living conditions and the challenges of industrialisation. One hundred years later, mutuality was not just mainstream. Co-operative societies, friendly societies, building societies and a range of other primary citizen-based enterprises and

estate ownership in 2013 enabled the border to become ever more open and allowed many affluent citizens from RN Macedonia to become “sedimented” in Greece by purchasing real estate, enabling a closer interaction between the two sides. In fieldwork conducted in Skopje and Halkidiki's coastal towns of Kallithea, Polichrono, Haniotis, and Pevkohori on Cassandra – the first finger of the peninsula – and in the city of Nea Moudania in central Halkidiki, I collected materials from interviews and participant observation with 24 citizens from RN Macedonia who vacationed in

This article proposes that Manchester, John Rylands Library, Latin MS 165 was an ‘accessory text’ produced and gifted within the Tudor court and passed down by matrilineal transmission within the influential Fortescue family. It proposes that from the text’s conception, the book of devotions participated in various projects of self-definition, including Henry VII’s campaign for the canonisation of his Lancastrian ancestor, Henry VI. By analysing visual and textual evidence, it posits that later female owners imitated the use of marginal spaces by the book’s original scribe and illuminator. Finally, it traces the book’s ownership back from its acquisition by the John Rylands Library to the viscounts Gage, in whose custody the book underwent a transformation from potentially subversive tool of female devotion to obscure historical artefact.
