Privatize This

Give me a break! But I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the Journal Sentinel thinks the idea of privatizing the Milwaukee Zoo needs further study. They support virtually all privatization, taxpayer subsidies for private projects, and general boondoggles pushed by development and budgetary hucksters.

Even though the Journal Sentinel actually researched the privatization issue and found that Wisconsin transportation contracts would have been cheaper in 125 out of 214 cases if the work would have been done by state employees rather than a private contractor.

But so much for reality. The market mystique cannot be questioned. Privatization of everything or bust!
