Privitization is cost shifting. It amounts to a tax increase in the form of user fees with no commesurate reduction in actual tax liabilities. Also, privitization tends to be more expensive because these efforts are devoid of the one thing that private enterprise lives with to control costs; competition. After the initial competition for the government contractbid a company is awarded a monopoly after which costs tend to rise, service tends to drop.
