As the state capture inquiry continues, one realises that the common thought that says private sector vs public sector is equal to good vs bad no longer applies. During this inquiry, a long list of State-Owned Companies has come up versus an equally long list of private corporations, some of them transnational.

Overview

During this inquiry, a long list of State-Owned Companies has come up versus an equally long list of private corporations, some of them transnational.
