Re: Its all about selling your labour
Unfortunately the BS is contagious and our current government here in Norway is hell bent on selling all sorts of strategic assets like StatOil, the wildly successful airport express trains and anything else that doesn't currently make a loss. They are also keen to reduce employee power by making it easier to hire and fire and to employ people part time ostensibly to reduce unemployment in a country which hardly has any (3.5% in 2013 according to the World Bank http://bit.ly/1JDKzqB).
I could understand selling state owned companies that weren't working properly but they never seem to do that they just sell the ones that are bringing in plenty of revenue. Even the bloke who runs the magazine Kapital (a very pro business monthly) and who is as free market as they come is alarmed that well run natural monopoly companies are in the sights of the right wing privatisation fanatics.
