520    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. In a series of brilliant 
       portraits James Meek shows how Britain's common wealth 
       became private, and the impact it has had on us all. In a 
       series of panoramic accounts, Meek explores the human 
       stories behind the incremental privatization of the nation
       over the last three decades. As our national assets are 
       being sold, the new buyers reap the rewards, and the 
       ordinary consumer is left to pay the ever-rising bill
