Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We don't need government ownership in companies to have a healthy capitalist regulation. We just need honest regulation!

Further I think government ownership of companies might work in the opposite direction, especially in places like Syria: instead of making business more honest it will make government more corrupt. CEO's and ministers will indeed be on the same side: their own.

Compare this with the very same experience from Fannie and Freddie.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
