Public and Private
Flipchart Fairy Tales has an interesting post on the differences between public and private organisations. It is a useful corrective to some of the more naive attempts to treat both sectors the same. It could add that public sector organisations usually have obligations that go beyond private sector ones. In particular, a private company can choose to deliver services to a select group, and not have to worry about anything else. A public sector organisation often has to actively reach out to various, often difficult to reach, groups.
