Re: “Are we ready to brand the public sector with corporate logos?

In some instances the private sector are the experts in providing services to the public. The government hasn't done a very good job at public transit thus far, so why wouldn't we let a private company aim to do a better job of it? The city hasn't done the best job creating long term infrastructure plans, so why not let professionals bid out to do the job. The private sector has benefits like firing people who do not reach goal benchmarks, or the ability to raise capital to put into large scale projects that doesn't include years of political debate. Should we be concerned over the check and balance of this sort of agreement? Sure. But I think it might lead to more effective and efficient answers for Charleston's problems.
