    causative structure?

    "Some privatisation have let tycoons milk monopolies or get assets cheaply."

    Could anyone make it a simple sentence? Is this a causative sentence but I do not understand the meaning?

    Hello, vaibhavmaskar.

    How about:

    "Some privatisations have allowed tycoons to milk [...]"

    Hello, again.

    "get assets cheaply" means " get assets without spending much money".
