   Which model is best?
   Take the best of the public and private sector and
   create a new model called: Public-Private Partnership

   Propose:   WMD with strong regulatory, oversight
              and protection function

               Outsource / delegate service delivery
               function and include economic
               incentives in the regulatory system
