SORRY, THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT

In a little over a generation the bones and sinews of the British economy -- rail, energy, water, postal services, municipal housing -- have been sold to remote, unaccountable private owners who reap the rewards while consumers are left paying the ever-rising bill. James Meek explores the human stories behind the incremental privatisation of the nation over the last three decades and the impact it has had on us all.
