John Stossel did some nice work on his Fox Show The Battle for the Future. You can watch all six segments on youtube for free.
I enjoyed the story of how Sandy Spring, GA privatized its government work that starts at 7:49 of segment 4:
Citizens complained about their tax dollars becoming profits for a private company. The Margaret Thatcher look-a-like mayor, Eva Galambos, aptly responds:
Honestly, what difference does it make if some company is making a profit, but you’re getting a service that costs you less?
Amazing, in this time of unfunded government worker pensions that we don’t hear about more local governments going this route.
Also, starting about 6 minute mark is a prescient (I believe I originally saw this show aired a couple months ago) segment on what’s happening in Wisconsin right now.
