  • 1. Mohammad Sabuz Class: Managing in a Global Economy Nationalizations Nationalization is the process of taking private industry or private assets into public ownership in interest of the good of the public rather than individuals1. Nationalization is very common for developing nations due to rapid leadership and regime changes and it’s a way for government to expand its economic resources and power2. When nationalization occurs, private industries are brought under government’s control and it is run as a government organization. It tends to reduce competition and scare away industries. It reduces revenue, businesses are under-invested and results in a lower growth rate3. Nationalization occurs when private companies are in trouble but it is very crucial for the nation that the business continues to prevent the economy from collapsing. Businesses such as banks, transport, communication, energy and natural resources4 are industries which absolutely cannot fail. If one of these sectors was near collapsing, Government will take over and will manage it in favor of the good of the public and the nation’s economy. 1 http://www.investopedia.com/terms/n/nationalization.asp 2 http://www.investopedia.com/terms/n/nationalization.asp 3 http://www.youngzine.org/article/nationalization-what-it 4 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationalization
  • 2. Mohammad Sabuz Class: Managing in a Global Economy To answer the question, are nationalization justified? Yes, it is justified. It’s great when the economy is growing, competitions among businesses rises, more opportunities are created, GDP expands and so forth but what happens when things fall apart and no one is there to support/break the fall. The 2007-2008 Global Financial Crisis5 is considered to be one of the worst financial crises since the 1930s Great Depression. The national government of US bailed out banks and other large financial institutions6 in the US. Central banks around the world have taken similar steps to expand their monetary supplies. US alone has executed two stimulus package totaling $787 billion7. If the government wasn’t there to help these private institutions, we all would be back into another Great Depression. Bottom line is privatization is great as it helps to expand an economy rapidly. It creates jobs, encourages competition, attracts investors but it’s better to know that if all fails, government is there to save us. 5 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Financial_crisis_of_2007%E2%80%9308 6 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Financial_crisis_of_2007%E2%80%9308 7 http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7889897.stm
