Get Efficient, Private Sector Tells Nature

The Issue
A group of prominent business identities has proposed privatizing Erisianna's beaches.

The Debate
1. "Have you been to the beach lately? It's disgusting," says company spokesperson Violet Hanover. "There's litter, there's teenagers smoking, and there are people enjoying themselves without paying for it. Let the private sector in on this, and Erisianna's beaches will be the talk of the region! And a nice little earner, too."

2. "Whoa, whoa, we're privatizing beaches now?" says local campaigner Beth du Pont. "These are public spaces! All Erisianna's citizens have a right to enjoy them, not just the well-off. Yes, we should improve the quality of our beaches, but handing them over to the money-grabbers is not the right way to do it. The right way to do it is to boost government spending by increasing taxes."
