Privatization: A Case Study
Author: Ronald D. Doctor
Date: 10/84
Presented at the Annual Meeting of the Water Pollution Control Federation, New Orleans, Louisiana, Oct. 2, 1984

At that time, the prospect of congressional changes in the tax code in use of Industrial Development Revenue Bonds (IDBs) cast a long shadow of uncertainty over the privatization scene.
