Privatizing Federal Programs

JUNE 01, 1987 by HANS SENNHOLZ

Privatization transfers services from government agencies to private producers. The efficiency gains that flow from competitive enterprise are to be used to cut spending.[1] Privatization is also said to pay rich political dividends. It creates powerful groups of providers and beneficiaries who profit from the programs. They may be mobilized to support privatization and build a coalition for decisive spending Cuts.[2]

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
