I spoke to you in a previous article about the interesting joint action between private enterprise and public body working together toward combating social degradation and crime in one of the most dangerous US cities: Camden (New Jersey). And I mentioned it because in Spain we suffer a prejudice about the "private" concept as opposed to "public", identifying private as "bad", disruptive and expensive, while the public is associated as "good" beneficial and free.
In fact this is in part misleading. Remember that the public is not free (we all pay) and sometimes those running it are not as effective as they should be in their actions and results, causing great harm to citizens relating to the proper use of public goods and services. The absence of waste through the budget control act with diligence in spending and avoiding the misuse of material and human resources leads to greater efficiency in the delivery of public services when these are managed by companies, even on top of the profit that they should try to achieve, among others benefits are to maintain jobs, salaries, pension contributions, lower benefits, disease, and so on
