This paper, based on the relevant theories of new institution economics and the theory of public goods, makes a theoretical analysis on urban sewage treatment industry and figures out some problems occurring during the process of marketization reform. This paper aims to make it clear that market mechanism is more efficient and effective than government interference in sewage treatment industry. (Less)
