Abstract

Kate Bayliss argues that the most significant impact of the privatisation of Royal Mail will be the fundamental shift in relations it brings about between various agents. Though the Queen will remain on our stamps, prices will almost certainly rise and jobs will probably be lost in the name of increased productivity. There are other options that should be explored, and the starting point needs to be an evaluation of alternative methods of addressing current constraints, which takes account of the impact on agency relations in the wider system of provision.
