Has there ever been a case when government was more efficient than private industry?
Politicians have perfected waste and mismanagement, which should be expected when there are no consequences.
A private company may actually go out of business so they have an incentive to act prudently.
Unless of-course youre a bank or some other giant enterprise. You can still take risks, go bankrupt and have the government bail you out.
Regardless, its a moot point. One of the few powers that the Constitution grants the federal government is a standing army, not a global empire, which is what we have.
