Grave financial woes swamping developing world nations have spurred government interest in divestment as a means of reducing the state's role in economic activity. Cowan's how-to book details privatization methods for industry, agriculture, and the service sector. Included are in-depth discussions on preparing firms for disposition; making realistic, market-based valuations; developing alternative sale arrangements; and creating sophisticated financing packages. This handbook will enable officials of developing world states to initiate privatization strategies and develop their own plans with the help of local civil servants.
