Is privitizing state operated services a good thing?

Some services are better suited to the public sector and some are better suited to the private. On the whole, I don't find privatization a scary thing. I'd prefer public-private partnerships though.
But it has got to be sensible (government doesn't need to run an air line or a liquor store). But clearly having financial incentives around the prison system is just asking for trouble. Same with healthcare (to an extent anyway. Canada's health care is still privately-operated, but publicly-funded), because doctors and drug companies make more money the longer you're sick.
Really, it's just common sense. Sometimes it makes sense, sometimes it doesn't. Neither option is the best option in every case.
