Elliot Sclar's book You Don't Always Get What You Pay For: The Economics of Privatization presents an empirical analysis of privatization that he thinks has been lacking. He uses several case studies to explain the merits and downfalls of trying to privatize "public services." After examining several case studies he concludes the privately producing "publicly provided goods" is not always beneficial to society.
