Colin Crouch on Public-Private Partnership - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 950
Public Private Partnership/Crouch: According to Crouch, the most important reason for post-democratic change (>Post-Democracy/Crouch
) is the privatization of state tasks and the economization of political processes. The cause is not so much the market principle(1) as the effort to save money and resources.
Citizens' claims lose their intrinsic character and are no longer treated as inalienable values, but as public goods comparable to other goods on the market and traded accordingly.
Brocker I 951
With the withdrawal of politics from the responsibility of fulfilment, the delegation of services of general interest to private service providers and the commercial restructuring of the administration, according to Crouch the state has no choice but to become itself a "government entrepreneur", a government entrepreneur who more or less successfully imitates the success strategies of corporations through marketing and branding(2).
