    * My article's title is: "Sun Microsystems Profit Falls 73% as Customers Cut Spending".
    * The major causes of this profit fall is as follows:
    - The weakining U.S economy.
    - Reorganization charges weighed on the server and software maker.
    - Intense market competition.

    So my questions is, what are the right economic terms intact with this article. Thanks alot.

    Private finance for hospitals (PFIs) is one example. I think the Tube is another example that combines public and private sector. Government also utilises independent advisors - specialists from the private sector - when forming policy.

    I've got privatization, but pretty much everything I can think of just fits under that...

    Not particularly,..
    It takes a long time to implement the transition fully as the formerly command based economy will need to create a free market economy, infrastructure relevant to this, and indeed be able to manage it; something they have no experience of. I'm too tired to go into detail into this right now, but I'm sure you understand what I'm getting at...if not, just pm me.
    Look at Eastern European economies for examples of this; they faced many problems in their earlier transition years.

    These aren't really economic questions, more general knowledge, if that lol, but I'll have a quick go...

    1) Rented, Private/Owned, Council, Flats, Shared...etc
    2) Rental market was huge until 80's, now almost everyone owns their houses
    3) alot. lol google it
    4) excluding this year it's increased vastly. approx 140% rise I think.

    hope that helps at least a little lol.
