Sometimes it is voluntary with full payment to the previous owners, and sometimes it is involuntary with no payment or worthless bonds.
[[Socialist]] governments nationalized industry in Britain, France and other countries after World War II. In most cases they have been privatized, that is returned to private ownership.
