Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to reflect on some specific observations that Municipal Housing Companies (MHCs) in Sweden have made as they complied with the Public Municipal Housing Companies Act of 2011.  This act, PMHCA 2011, required MHCs to perform in a business-like manner.  It was not explicitly noted, but undoubtedly assumed, by authors of this legislation that the municipal sector of housing would proceed much as before.  In other words, the effect of passage would be a tweaking of present operations.  As is frequently the case in examples of New Public Management (NPM) applications, however, there can be unexpected consequences to legislative activities.  Results are reported here for a situation in which a particular MHC made a significant sale of properties to a private company, and an assessment is made of the apparent strategies involved for the two companies.  Although specific in nature, it is emblematic of the manner in which all MHCs must be assessing their operations.
