Last Exit: Privatization and Deregulation of the U.S. Transportation System
AbstractIn Last Exit Clifford Winston reminds us that transportation services and infrastructure in the United States were originally introduced by private firms. The case for subsequent public ownership and management of the system was weak, in his view, and here he assesses the case for privatization and deregulation to greatly improve Americans’ satisfaction with their transportation systems. Chapters 1 and 5 are included here as a preview.
