Privatising electricity assets and New South Wales' AAA credit rating

4 Mar 2008
Description

This submission to the Unsworth Inquiry does not oppose the privatisation, but takes issue with two propositions which appear to be presumed inmany discussions of the future of NSW’s electricity assets: that keeping the electricity industry in public hands will compromise the state’s AAA credit rating, and that we should do whatever is necessary to retain NSW’s AAA rating as a matter of principle rather than seeking to obtain the best credit rating we can whilst optimising economic outcomes for the state.
