>How would you determine 'a minimum level of public works'?

>Chirag

by a simple thumb rule - if private firms can do it and charge market
rates
- let them (eg toll roads), otherwise the government should contract it
out. let private firms provide the public good (through competitive
bidding) and pay them out of tax revenue.

it is an easy thing to say but very difficult to practise. any
suggestions
from the others on indiapolicy?
