What is Often Lost in the Argument Against Privatization – A Massive Misunderstanding of Free Markets and How They Work

As an avid free market supporter, privatization itself is not the issue, it’s when privatization is void of competition and free market principles. In the case of the child welfare system, there are few competitors, buyers (i.e. children/children advocates) are not able to choose, and there are no consequences for poor service. In a privatized system with little/no competition, little/no buyer choice, and little/no oversight, the only motivational factors that exist is for business owners to make as much money as possible. Making money is not bad, it’s a good motivator when balanced out by customers demanding a high quality of service, as found in a functioning free market system. Without the buyer’s ability to demand quality, it ultimately leads to corrosion in quality. The level of corrosion is directly proportioning to the ability for customers to demand quality. In this case, children have no ability to demand quality. Therefore, the quality is as low as the state will allow (never as high as customers will demand in a functioning system). Note: 1. There are obviously great people in every system who have strong moral convictions who will operate with the utmost of integrity regardless of any system they are part of. 2. A fully functioning free market system may not be possible in this situation. But to privatize alone without putting functioning and realistic controls in place, aiming for reduced cost and better quality, is grossly misunderstanding the situation.
