Map of bursa for In the last two decades, privatization has become an important part of government policy in FRANCE, in socialist SPAIN, in AUSTRALIA and New Zealand (both with labor governments), in GERMANY, and in the UNITED STATES. The first significant privatization of the Ronald Reagan administration in the United States was that of Conrail in 1987. Since then, several privatizations took place at the federal, state, and local levels. Examples include the U.S. Postal Service, the energy sector (especially electricity), the Port Authority of New York, and municipal golf courses.
