Public-private partnership has been presented as an opportunity to improve the input and output legitimacy of global environmental governance. Functional decentralization can generate a considerable improvement in the quality of life of the population and in the functioning of a city and its services. We reported in this paper some conclusions regarding externalisation, public-private partnership and improving the quality of life of the correct organizing of public services. We exemplified the well practice examples from Canadian Experience, Northern Europe Experience, UK private sector participation in Governance, and the Romanian case. After an important qualitative analyse of all these results we established if the New Public Management ideas are correct, or not. Some of the results contradict the New Public Management ideas: mainly that private sector participation through public-private partnerships in the delivery of public services will inevitably lead to a better use of scarce resources, and consequentially to lower user prices and higher quality goods and services. Our empirical analysis demonstrates that user prices have a stronger relationship with the organizational costs than with property or the adopted management model in the delivery of public services. The article offers a view of understanding that any solution to rebalancing budgets and world markets or to improving jobs and incomes will involve the public sector will be key issues for all comparative political economists studying the fundamental conflicts over income, equality and jobs in the years to come
