I didn't make the initial claim. The person who did provided no source. Your source only acknowledged national owned things. I'm sure nations in Europe also have lots of utilities owned publicly but not by the nation specifically, I'm sure cities own utilities around the world. I'm not responsible for dredging up difficult data to find, if it isn't easy to support an argument, why would we treat it as such a obvious thing?I think it's up to you to demonstrate that utilities owned by local/regional government are so much higher in the USA than other countries to more than make up the difference. Because you can "debate" all you like, but unless you want to stump up data, it's nothing more than empty yapping.
Then why did you ellipses over it?Yes, except it doesn't really undermine the point.
