The only good thing about "privatization" is the private sector is able to draw from a more educated, competent, less politically oriented sector.
It depends on how big the corporation is, who is actually in control and how well whistleblowers are protected because people in the private sector
are more apt to "tell on" higher ups if they have no fear of apprisal.
It is a catch 22.............I look at the Enron's and large corporations who screw over their own, then are taken out by their employees for being
the scumbags they are. I think most of our problems stem from greedy politicians who are on the take and are in positions of making policy/laws for
everyone so I tend to lean towards privatization simply because it is more efficient and you can cut through a lot of the red tape.
As far as costs.............there is so much WASTE in our government, so I don't see how you can say it is more expensive in the private sector.
Factor in all the benefits government employees receive that the private sector doesn't and I would think it would even out.
