Published Paris : Point du Jour International, 2006


Description 1 online resource (52 min.)
Series Global business and economics in video
Summary In an effort to open ́ђجpublic servicéђح to the market, the EU decreed that electricity was a ́ђجproduct like any otheŕђح. But, are we able to apprehend the consequences of such a liberalisation? In the 1990's, California broke up its own public service into many private companies and became the victim of its own idea: in 2001, these companies plunged the whole state into darkness. Electricity prices rose by 40%. Neither this example, nor the series of black-outs around the world in 2003 were able to stop the European deregulation machine. Will electricity become the luxury product of the future?
