In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Jesse Hathaway, managing editor of Budget & Tax News speaks with Leonard Gilroy. Gilroy is director of government reform at the Reason Foundation. Gilroy joins Hathaway to discuss the benefits of privatization.
Gilroy talks about how privatization—allowing private-sector businesses to compete with government agencies to best serve the public’s needs—helps everyone. Gilroy explains that privatization helps people in many ways that they may not even know, as everyday public goods and services like trash collection or recreational parks are provided and funded by private businesses. When businesses compete with governments to provide the highest quality of service at the best cost to consumers, he explains, everyone wins and benefits in the end.
