Parcerias público-privadas

Escreve John Kay no Financial Times de ontem:
"PFI [Private Finance Initiatives, ou Parcerias Público-Privadas] contracts are inflexible. Schools and hospitals are locked into agreements that may last 30 years or more. This follows from insistence on bundling finance, capital procurement and facilities management into a single contract. Any change in requirements during that period must be negotiated with a monopoly provider who generally has little incentive to be economical or accommodating, as George Osborne, the chancellor of the exchequer, discovered when faced with a quotation for a Treasury Christmas tree so exorbitant that he went out to buy one himself."
Creio que se pode dizer sem receio de exagerar que a nossa bolha doméstica foi a das parcerias público-privadas.
