AN EXECUTIVE LOOKS AT- Private Enterprise and Public Needs

The article explores the relationship between the government and the private sector in the United States in 1967. The author feels that the term "private sector" is overly broad since it can refer to businesses ranging from local retailers to government-funded defense contractors as well as government-regulated utility companies. He calls for the privatization of government corporations as a more effective way to streamline certain businesses that are creatively stagnant. He also suggests that welfare reform and social policies such as federally financed medical care offer great hopes for a better society.
