Delegation of Governmental Power to Private Parties: A Comparative Perspective
by Catherine Donelly (Hardcover - Jan 10, 2008). Oxford University Press, USA (January 10, 2008).

Through a comparative analysis of England, the European Union, and the United States, this book considers legal responses to delegation of governmental power to private parties. It is argued that although private delegation has the potential to enhance the efficency and effectiveness of governance, it should not be assumed to have this result. Information  

Going Public: The Theory and Evidence on How Companies Raise Equity Finance by Tim Jenkinson, Alexander Ljungqvist, and Jay Ritter (Hardcover - Feb 15, 2001). Oxford University Press, USA; 2 edition (February 15, 2001).
During its life, a company must make the critical decision of if, and when, to `go public' by listing themselves on the stock exchange. Two anomalies are apparent: that companies taking this route systematically initially underprice their shares and that over the longer term they under-perform other companies. This second edition of Going Public investigates these issues in a non-technical manner. Information

The Problems of Privatization: An International Analysis by Bernardo Bortolotti and Domenico Siniscalco (Hardcover - May 6, 2004). Oxford University Press, USA (May 6, 2004).

This book provides the first systematic empirical analysis of privatization processes worldwide to explain how and why governments privatize. Privatization is shown to be a difficult process, shaped by political preferences and budgetary constraints, often pursued in the absence of suitable economics and legal institutions. As a result, in most cases, the process has been partial and incomplete, so that private ownership tends to coexist with public control. Information  

The Financial Economics of Privatization by William L. Megginson (Hardcover - Jan 13, 2005). Oxford University Press, USA (January 13, 2005).
Since 1981, over 100 governments around the world have raised over $1 trillion through the sale of SOEs to private investors. Privatization programs have transformed the role of the state in virtually all-major economies, and have massively increased the capitalization and liquidity of all non-U.S. stock markets.
