Indicate whether the following statement is true or false
A government decision not to privatise economic sectors and entities is influenced by its ideological predisposition towards liberalism
The statement "A government decision not to privatize economic sectors and entities is influenced by its ideological predisposition towards liberalism" is false. Privatization evokes notions of private and public and can sometimes lead to strong political reactions. The liberal ideology encompasses the privatization of economic activities so that the state has less control of citizens' economic activities. Liberal view the state as a public entity, and hence its actions must be monitored by citizens. Yet, liberals also view their business as private entities; thus, if privatization happens, it must take care of public interests. Liberalization and privatization are two related concepts, therefore, since they both promote the idea of greater competition. Accordingly, it is common to hear terms such as liberalized financial markets.
