Privatize to Make America Affordable Again! (Guest: Austill Stewart & Len Gilroy)

January 30, 2018

It’s a known fact that government is never as efficient as the private sector. The question is, how far can privatization go? Two experts from the Reason Foundation give their thoughts on the topic.

Austill Stewart and Len Gilroy from the Reason Foundation join Jim Lakely on the show to discuss a growing movement towards privatizing industries the public center has traditionally handled.  Stewart and Gilroy point towards how the private sector is more efficient and provides goods and services at a more affordable cost.

Stuart and Gilroy discuss that to revitalize the public sector, it must incorporate several private sector principles to increase performance, transparency, and accountability.  One way of accomplishing this is creating a center for excellence, a single independent decision making body to manage privatization initiatives.

Jim Lakely is the Vice President and Director of Communications of The Heartland Institute. @jlakely
