Third Thoughts on Contracting Out
Like many libertarians, I used to accept without question the idea that contracting out for government services was a good idea. After all, it puts production back into the hands of relatively efficient private producers. However, after reviewing the literature on contracting out for law enforcement services I had some second thoughts, concluding that while contracting out might solve some problems of government inefficiency, other more serious problems would remain.
