The purpose of this paper is to explore a theory of government governance choice that explains what makes the differences among three organizational systems; an executive agency system, privatization, and a bureaucratic system. The results obtained in our paper are summarized as follows. First, we show that an executive agency system cannot achieve the first-best allocation of resources. However, it can induce more effort than a bureaucratic system. Then, we next show that the transition from an executive agency system to privatization can be more easily achievable than from a bureaucratic system.
