Re: “Privatizing: Is it really the way to go?

Why have so many people fallen for the lie that the private sector is best?
Private sector makes a profit:
1. By selling things to people that they don't want.
2. By repeat selling products
3. By reducing services - auto makers, cell phone and computer makers don't provide a repair service, they sell the products and let us try and work out who does that
4. Airlines provide a terrible service unless you pay a lot more than normal

When it comes to public services, the private sector makes a profit by cutting labor costs, pension plans etc, it doesn't provide a better service; in the prison service, it makes money by locking more people up and being paid by the government per head.
In the health service, it makes money by not treating people and by encouraging wasteful procedures and surgeries that don't do you much good.

No private corporation runs a good service, let me know if anyone can think of one - and even then, it is just the odd one, an exception, with the vast majority deliberately providing poor service - the nation's biggest complaint.
