I would have a national lottery for distributing the shares of public sector
companies, with all taxpayers entitled to win big. Before the lottery takes
place, preparations would be made to help people manage newly acquired wealth
- the consultancy field should thrive as a result. 

Limiting the lottery just to workers seems unfair, for the public sector
represents the investment of all taxpayers in the country. Worker's unions
could be allotted a certain percentage of shares, with individual shares being
allotted to current and retired individuals. This should engage everyone in a
desire to maximize productivity and profits.
