Economic Activity, Market Failure and Services of General Economic Interest: It Takes Two to Tango

Economic Activity, Market Failure and Services of General Economic Interest: It Takes Two to Tango

 
ABSTRACT
The material consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic bring back into sharp focus the age-old debate as to the desirable balance between the public and private sectors of the economy. Whilst the degree of State involvement differs considerably as between the various Member States, the overall level of that engagement has declined since the ascension to office of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan in 1979. The European Union (‘EU’) has not been immune to this trend.
