Is privatization good for the economy? I've heard cases on both sides saying that it is, but I can't figure which one is correct. Thanks

I'm pretty sure it is but I think it brings civil rights down.

If you are referring to the beaches, I never bother privatising them, preferring to use that issue to bump my Civil Rights. Also, someone actually argued a while ago that it might be having a detrimental effect on economies, with that particular example of privatisation being one that leads to inefficiency, possibly a becoming a loss-making enterprise. I don't suppose it would have much of an effect either way, but you could try and see if privatisation helps.

Depends on who wrote the issue.
I'm guessing some American, so privatisation would probably boost the economy. :roll:

I accidently privatised beaches once and my economy shoy up to "weak" (It also took me a week to get it back down)

You wanted it to stay down?

Privatising the beaches boosts economy and the environment at the cost of civil rights.

Ah. I'm good enough at that anyway, and would prefer to keep Civil Rights high.
