The history of public service supply reflects the evolution of government functions. This article sorts out the development process of the public service provision function of the Western government from the perspective of the change of the main body of public service provision. The first stage was before the 20th century, when the government played a limited role in the provision of public services, with households, private organizations, and social organizations performing public service provision functions. The second phase was from the early 20th century to the 1970s, when the government gradually monopolized public service provision. The third stage is from the 1980s to the present. The wave of marketization of public services has swept the world. The government gradually withdrew from some public service supply areas and cooperated with social organizations to provide public services. We can get some inspiration from the history combing of how the Chinese government should effectively provide public services.
