Dassiou, X., Langham, P., Nancarrow, C., Scharaschkin, A. and Ward, D. (2016). New development: Exploring public service markets. Public Money and Management, 36(2), pp. 149-152. doi: 10.1080/09540962.2016.1118942

Abstract

The authors explain why public service markets are fundamentally different from regulated utilities markets by looking at the product characteristics, market structure, funding oversight and legal arrangements in such markets. They highlight the issues which will be important as marketized delivery becomes increasingly mainstream in public services provision.
