Late 20th-century information technology may be a contractor preserve. Profits and the public interest overlap best when the privatized service or asset is in a competitive market. The story in the United States has been somewhat different, largely because the U.

    This growth of privatization has not, of course, gone uncontested. Finally, there is the possibility that we can begin to think of approaches—new tools, if not entirely new visions—to employ if the presumption of regularity cannot be assumed. Efforts to make such activities profitable would quite likely mean the reintroduction of government intervention—after the fact. There is a third perspective: the issue is not simply whether ownership is private or public.
