Listen to a conversation between a student and her economics professor.
Excellent presentation you made at the end of class yesterday.
I’m so glad you volunteered to present first.
Starting out by outlining what you were going to say, then at the end summarizing the key points.
It was a very effective way of getting your points across.
I’m glad you think so. I was afraid it might come across as too formal.
Not at all. In fact, I think it’s a great approach in general for these presentations.
So I hope the others were taking note, and the economic model you discussed: build operate transfer, I think everyone was quite interested.
Yeah. It makes so much sense,
if governments allow private companies to build public works like a power plant
and then operate it for a decade or two before transferring ownership to the government, everyone benefits.
Yes, the private companies make a profit, the public gets immediate infrastructure.
