Private Sector vs.  Public Sector
If you were mailing an extremely important package, you'd probably trust FedEx more than the U.S. Postal Service. But why? Is it because FedEx is a private company, while the post office is run by the government? What are the differences between the "private sector" and the government sector? Why does it matter?

Politicians in the media often talk about the private and public sectors of our economy but what's the difference? And which one is more effective? The private sector is made up of businesses or corporations owned by people. The private sector includes malls, grocery stores, and your local diner. To make a profit in the private sector, businesses must earn our money by offering us products and services that we want or need. When businesses have to compete for the same dollars, prices go down because no one wants to pay twice as much for shoes at one store if you can get the same pair cheaper at another place. On the other hand, the public sector is not supported by profits. It doesn't have to compete for our dollars. Instead, the public sector uses our tax dollars to fund its services. So we pay for these programs no matter how much or how little we use them. The government decides how our tax dollars should be spent in the public sector. This makes sense for some things. For example, you probably wouldn't want firefighters or police officers competing with one another for your business. In other cases though, this means things cost more or service is worse. The U.S. Post Office has $100 billion in debt and is regularly bailed out with taxpayer money. And the Department of Motor Vehicles isn't usually known for fast, friendly service. In contrast, private companies know that if they offer poor customer service and don't make money, they'll go out of business. When comparing the private sector with the public sector, it's clear that the market-driven private sector is more efficient. When you don't have to be profitable or accountable, things tend to be more expensive and the service is worse. So when there's a choice between a private sector or a government service, think about that package you really need delivered.

Long-term investments? - Privatisation!
With its plans for „long-term investments” the German federal government and the European Commission want to open public infrastructure in an entirely new scale to private investors like funds, banks and insurance companies. They shall be able to invest more easily in motorways, water pipe systems or prisons through new types of investment funds or project bonds – despite lots of negative experience with the privatisation of such structures and the privatisation model PPP that shall be used for this purpose. The German minister for economic affairs, Sigmar Gabriel, has therefore already convened a commission and plans to make the renovation of the ailing infrastructure a profit machine for banks and insurances. The citizens pay additionally and the public sector gets indebted for decades. But hardly anyone knows about it, because the project is planned under secrecy.

Social Security vs. Private Retirement
Is Social Security a good retirement plan? Economics professor Antony Davies shows that Americans stand to earn significantly less and assume more risk with Social Security than other investment options. According to Davies, taxpayers would be better off both in terms of financial security and return on investment by investing their money privately. Social security is extremely expensive, soon to be insolvent, and doesn't even offer taxpayers the most bang for their buck. For those reasons, Prof. Davies argues that it is time for the government to phase out Social Security. Davies' solution: the government should honor its obligations to current retirees while giving Americans the freedom to invest their money as they see fit. Find LearnLiberty on...

Private prisons: How US corporations make money out of locking you up
Today the US is home to 5% of the world's population but a quarter of the world's prisoners. It also has the highest rate of youth imprisonment and on any given day there are more than 70,000 youths in detention. And the biggest winners of this mass incarceration? The for-profit prison companies whose business models essentially depend on locking more and more people up.

Privatizing Vietnam's State-Owned Companies
When Vietnam started privatizing state-owned enterprises in the 80s, the private sector, which includes local businesses, began to flourish. When Vinamilk, a dairy product company, was privatized the company expanded globally, and today are operating in more than 43 countries, surpassing $2billion revenues in 2016. That’s a lot of milk!

Cash Is King: Part 1 - Saving vs. Investing
Cash Is King: Part 1 - Saving vs. Investing BOOST RETURNS on liquid capital without giving up access to cash: https://themoneyadvantage.com/privatized-banking/ They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Likewise, savings is magical, beautiful, powerful, but only for the person with the eyes to see its worth. When I have savings – cash in my control that I can use – I’m more relaxed and confident. I’m infinitely more creative when I’m safe and at ease. I’m able to direct all my energy to producing, taking action to create the next thing instead of protecting and hiding out in fear of losing everything. If it doesn’t work out, I’m not going to crash and burn. It’s like the solid foundation beneath my feet that keeps me progressing instead of slipping backward. When you save money, you keep it. You’re not seeking high returns. You don’t put it at risk. You can save money under the mattress, in a coffee can buried in the backyard, in the bank. No matter where you save, unless you spend it or it gets stolen, you aren’t losing your money. Saved money is safe money that is guaranteed to never go down in value. Contrast this with investing. When you invest, you’re looking for returns. You take on risk with the hope to get a return. With the risk, you get the potential for growth of your money, but also the potential for loss. Invested money has a risk of loss, and can go down in value. Enter the 1980s hype of the 401(k), where you could “save” for retirement and get returns too. You could also “save taxes”, but we’ll leave the tax issue completely off the table until another episode. If you put aside just $200/month for 45 years, at an expected 8% return, you could turn your account into over a million dollars. Problem is, people came to learn that there were times when they put their money in, did all of the right things, but the market still mercilessly washed away their life savings as indiscriminately as the waves of the ocean wash away sandcastles built on the shoreline. If you put your money at risk, it’s not saving, it’s investing. You can never apply compound interest principles to an investment because you’ll never see consistent, predictable returns. And hoping to be lucky and not lose will only cause your blood pressure to rise over things that you can’t control, like when the bottom dropped out and the S&P 500 lost 57%, more than half of its value, in the 2 years from 2007 to 2009. The rule of thumb is this: if it can lose value, it’s not savings. This disqualifies anything in the stock market, whether its mutual funds inside a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, or Roth IRA, and even equity in your home. Years and years of putting money away where you have the potential for loss can never guarantee you a certain future, and any expectation of that actually working out in your favor is built on false hope and absolving of responsibility. So while most people are busy believing the marketing and following the rules, investing in their retirement plans automatically with payroll deductions, and only saving if there happens to be enough left over, the ultra-wealthy who’ve transcended the system are doing just the opposite. The successful prioritize saving. So much so, that they save automatically. Why? Because they have boring, predictable money that they can count on to be there when they are ready to make a deliberate investing decision in the right opportunity, such as buying assets at a deep discount during a time of crisis. Instead of investing on autopilot and saving when they can, they are saving automatically and investing intentionally. Savings is like the safety net beneath the acrobats at the circus. With the buffer between the tightropes and the floor, the artists can confidently demonstrate the skill they’ve mastered. Without the safety net, they’d never scale the heights that they do. It’s time to revive your savings, and reawaken to the power it has in allowing you to live a truly free life, not just in the future, but right now, where it counts. Because living free to be your most productive, creative, highest potential version of yourself today is the only way to set up for an amazing tomorrow. To start prioritizing your savings, here’s what you can do today: 1) Write down any accounts where you are holding money 2) Go down the list and ask yourself these questions: A) Does this account have the potential to go down in value? If so, it’s an investment. B) Is it liquid and accessible? IF you are weighted towards money at risk, turn the tables – set your savings to auto-deposit, every paycheck, and be ok staying in cash until not only a good opportunity but precisely the right opportunity, surfaces. ”Music: http://www.bensound.com/royalty-free-music" #fulllifewealth #cashisking

Privatization of Public Education Part 1.wmv
The privatization of public education is conservatively worth $370 billion a year for the corporate hedge funds that invest in them. But in addition, the second part of this twofer is that a privatized profit maximized public public education model will dumb down public education, so that the future citizens in whom our Founding Fathers vest power under the constitution, will not have enough of an education to hold government and the corporations which have captured it accountable.

The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of The World by Niall Ferguson Epsd  1 5 Full Documentary
Professor Niall Ferguson examines the origins of the pillars of the world's financial system, and how behind every great historical phenomenon -- empires and republics, wars and revolutions -- there lies a financial secret. Episode 1: Dreams of Avarice. From Shylock's pound of flesh to the loan sharks of Glasgow, from the 'promises to pay' on Babylonian clay tablets to the Medici banking system, Professor Ferguson explains the origins of credit and debt and why credit networks are indispensable to any civilization. Episode 2: Human Bondage. How did finance become the realm of the masters of the universe? Through the rise of the bond market in Renaissance Italy. With the advent of bonds, war finance was transformed and spread to north-west Europe and across the Atlantic. It was the bond market that made the Rothschilds the richest and most powerful family of the 19th century. And today governments are asking it to bail them out. Episode 3: Blowing Bubbles. Why do stock markets produce bubbles and busts? Professor Ferguson goes back to the origins of the joint stock company in Amsterdam and Paris. He draws telling parallels between the current stock market crash and the 18th-century Mississippi Bubble of Scottish financier John Law and the 2001 Enron bankruptcy. He shows why humans have a herd instinct when it comes to investment, and why no one can accurately predict when the bulls might stampede. Episode 4: Risky Business. Life is a risky business -- which is why people take out insurance. But faced with an unexpected disaster, the state has to step in. Professor Ferguson travels to post-Katrina New Orleans to ask why the free market can't provide adequate protection against catastrophe. His quest for an answer takes him to the origins of modern insurance in the early 19th century and to the birth of the welfare state in post-war Japan. Episode 5: Safe As Houses. It sounded so simple: give state-owned assets to the people. After all, what better foundation for a property-owning democracy than a campaign of privatisation encompassing housing? An economic theory says that markets can't function without mortgages, because it's only by borrowing against their assets that entrepreneurs can get their businesses off the ground. But what if mortgages are bundled together and sold off to the highest bidder? Episode 6: Chimerica. Since the 1990s, once risky markets in Asia, Latin America and eastern Europe have become better investments than the UK or US stock market. The explanation is the rise of 'Chimerica', the economic marriage of China and the United States. But does it make sense for poor Chinese savers to lend to rich American spenders? http://www.RebelMystic.com

Smash School Privatisation: Hedge Fund Bank Robber Protest
Friday 26 September 2008: following the invasion of their headquarters (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=A4Wbia2BQKk) teachers and parents loudly protested outside the Ark offices, the "charity" of Swiss/French financier and philanthropist Arpad (Arki) Busson, the most favoured sponsor of Tony Blair's Academy school system. Academy schools are state schools taken over by private sponsors, such as religious groups and private or corporate interests. The UK taxpayer still pays for the school, the private sponsors profit from the school, and parents and local council have no say in the running of the school. The unelected undemocratic sponsor dictates all.

President Bush and Privatizing Social Security: Personal Retirement Accounts - Finance (2005)
Social Security is a social insurance program officially called "Old-age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance" (OASDI), in reference to its three components. It is primarily funded through a dedicated payroll tax. During 2012, total benefits of $786 billion were paid out versus income (taxes and interest) of $840 billion, a $54 billion annual surplus. Excluding interest of $109 billion, the program had a cash deficit of $55 billion. Estimates of lost revenues due to the temporary payroll tax cuts of 2011 and 2012 were offset by transfers of other government funds into the program; this was $114 billion in 2012. An estimated 161 million people paid into the program and 57 million received benefits in 2012, roughly 2.82 workers per beneficiary. Reform proposals continue to circulate with some urgency, due to a long-term funding challenge faced by the program. Starting in 2011 and continuing thereafter, program expenses were expected to exceed cash revenues, due to the aging of the baby-boom generation (resulting in a lower ratio of paying workers to retirees), expected continuing low birth rate (compared to the baby-boom period), and increasing life expectancy. Further, the government has borrowed and spent the accumulated surplus funds, called the Social Security Trust Fund.[2] At the end of 2012, the Trust Fund was valued at $2.7 trillion, up $54 billion from 2011. The Trust Fund consists of the accumulated surplus of program revenues less expenditures. In other words, $2.7 trillion more Social Security payroll taxes have been collected than have been used to pay Social Security beneficiaries; the program has more than fully funded itself.[3] The fund contains non-marketable Treasury securities backed "by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government." The funds borrowed from the program are part of the total national debt of $16.8 trillion as of April 2013.[4] Program payouts exceeded cash program revenues (i.e., revenue excluding interest) in 2011; this shortfall is expected to continue indefinitely under current law. Due to interest, the Trust Fund will continue increasing through the end of 2021, reaching a peak of approximately $3.0 trillion. Social Security has the legal authority to draw amounts from other government revenue sources besides the payroll tax, to fully fund the program, while the Trust Fund exists. However, payouts greater than payroll tax revenue and interest income over time will liquidate the Trust Fund by 2033, meaning that only the ongoing payroll tax collections thereafter will be available to fund the program.[5] There are certain key implications to understand under current law, if no reforms are implemented: Payroll taxes will only cover about 75% of the scheduled payout amounts from 2033-2086. Without changes to the law, Social Security would have no legal authority to draw other government funds to cover the shortfall. Between 2022 and 2033, redemption of the Trust Fund balance to pay retirees will draw approximately $3 trillion in government funds from sources other than payroll taxes. This is a funding challenge for the government overall, not just Social Security. The present value of unfunded obligations under Social Security was approximately $8.6 trillion over a 75-year forecast period (2012-2086). In other words, that amount would have to be set aside in 2012 so that the principal and interest would cover the shortfall for 75 years. The estimated annual shortfall averages 2.5% of the payroll tax base or 0.9% of gross domestic product (a measure of the size of the economy). Measured over the infinite horizon, these figures are $20.5 trillion, 3.9% and 1.3%, respectively. The annual cost of Social Security benefits represented 5.0% of GDP in 2011. This is projected to increase gradually to 6.4% of GDP in 2035 and then decline to about 6.1% of GDP by 2055 and remain at about that level through 2086. Former President George W. Bush called for a transition to a combination of a government-funded program and personal accounts ("individual accounts" or "private accounts") through partial privatization of the system. President Barack Obama "strongly opposes" privatization or raising the retirement age, but supports raising the annual maximum amount of compensation that is subject to the Social Security payroll tax ($110,100 of compensation in 2012, and $113,700 in 2013) to help fund the program. In addition, on February 18, 2010, President Obama issued an executive order mandating the creation of the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, which made ten specific recommendations to ensure the sustainability of Social Security. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_Security_debate_in_the_United_States

Here’s How NASA Created America’s Private Space Industry (HBO)
When you think about who’s in charge of cutting-edge spaceflight in 2018, SpaceX is probably the first name that comes to mind. Maybe Orbital ATK; or Blue Origin, owned by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. What it might not be is NASA. NASA was established by the federal government during the Cold War to project American prestige and beat the Soviets, all in the name of space science. But the agency’s image arguably peaked with Neil Armstrong’s steps on the moon; and since then its grandeur has lagged, having fallen victim to a series of failed space missions, deep funding cuts to research, and changing political will. For over a decade, NASA has been steadily ceding exploration of the cosmos to for-profit companies. And now, each new SpaceX launch becomes a media sensation –— while NASA’s public profile is fading. But actually, NASA had a lot to do with getting America’s private space industry off the ground in the first place. VICE News spoke with Dennis Stone, one of the founding members of NASA’s commercial investment program, to hear the story behind the agency’s success in backing private spaceflight.

Stossel: Free-Market Social Security
How to reform social security so that it won't bankrupt us. --------- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz... Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at iTunes: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. --------- Today is the 83rd anniversary of Social Security, and this year it went into the red. In the long run, it has a shortfall of $32 trillion. John Stossel says that the program is unsustainable. Young people shouldn't expect it to cover their retirement. Romina Boccia explains the Heritage Foundation's plan to allow young people to contribute to their Social Security payments via private investment accounts. Those private accounts would likely grow faster than people's contributions to Social Security, and young people could invest in "whatever floats your boat," Boccia tells Stossel. Private investment accounts have been tried in other parts of the world. When Chile started them in 1981, it was poorer than most Latin American countries. Now it's the very richest. Yet mass demonstrations denounce it for being run privately, and for companies taking some of the profit. They miss the fact that Chileans have more money for retirement than most Latin Americans only because of their private accounts. Privatization is also unpopular in America, and so are Boccia's other proposals. She and Heritage would raise the retirement age to 70 to account for rising lifespans. "When Social Security was actually founded, life expectancy was below 65," Boccia tells Stossel. Now it's 78. Stossel tells Boccia: "What you guys are pushing is the right thing to do, but it's not popular." She replies: "It is not popular, but I think people don't fully understand how these programs work." The good news is that this was the first time that when Stossel went to talk with people on the street, most people understood the problem. One man called it a "Ponzi scheme" and asked, "why not take it and invest it in the stock market and let it grow that way?" A woman summed it up well: "The country's in a deficit; there's a point where you can't pay out and go in the negative forever." The views expressed in this video are solely those of John Stossel; his independent production company, Stossel Productions; and the people he interviews.

Infrastructure, Asset Recycling & Guaranteeing Higher Costs - Sunny Ways
Infrastructure - an all encompassing word used to describe just about anything that is for use by the public at large. Mass transit, roads & highways, hospitals, schools and sports/leisure facilities are the things that spring to mind. Sunny Ways promised to deliver these things for Canadians, to stimulate economic growth and put in place the foundations for a better future. Sounds good, doesn't it? Infrastructure is also the assets in place, built with public funds and owned by the public, administered by all levels of government. Real equity in tangible developments used by all. Airports. Highway systems. Water ports. Educational facilities. Health care facilities. For decades, the public financing model worked. It still does but it's not satisfactory for neoliberals. Mulroney opened the door and airport privatization was an issue in the 1993 election. That led to the "Airport Authority" model that introduced user fees, improvement levies and for-profit ventures on Federal lands. Water ports followed suit within a decade. The Advisory Council on Economic Growth now wants to continue what the CPC started, on steroids. Harper made piles of money available, the only catch being it had to be a P3 project thereby preventing public ownership and transparency. Bay Street darling Minister of Finance Bill Morneau will set up the Canadian Infrastructure Development Bank, a P3 clearing house by any other name. Previously announced public funding will now be a minority stake in new projects, with institutional investment funds becoming the de facto owners. Morgan Stanley was brought in to advise on airport privatization. Credit Suisse AG was asked to study water port privatization. They want to sell what we paid for and own to entice more privatized ownership of new projects. Asset Recycling is a trojan horse and guess who will pay? Not the investment fund managers on the Advisory Council.

The Question of Privatization
In Washington, D.C. and all over the country, city governments are looking at outsourcing public works to private companies in an effort to save money. But who is really "saving money"? Our film explores the link between private companies exploiting skilled workers who used to earn a respectable income as public employees but now they are laboring under private for profit contractors and having to apply for public assistance to stay afloat. Right now, the District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT) is looking at what to do with the D.C. Circulator, a bus line currently "managed" by First Transit a company that has a poor track record. Do they make it public and bring it "in-house" or do they continue to outsource it to private for-profit companies?

Let me give you two reasons why. One: Social Security is going broke. And, two: Even if it weren’t going broke, it couldn’t possibly cover the cost of a decent retirement. Let’s look at these two reasons in a little more detail, and then I’ll propose a solution. Social Security is going broke. When this government program was set up in 1935, the average life expectancy was 60. But you couldn’t collect your first check until you reached 65. In other words, most people didn’t live long enough to receive Social Security. And most of those who did, didn’t collect it for very long. Today, the average lifespan is 79. So now, most people do live long enough to receive Social Security—for 10, or 20, or even 30 years. Here’s another important piece of information: When the program started, the ratio between worker and retiree was 159 to 1. That means for every one person drawing benefits, 159 were paying in. Today the ratio is 2.8 to 1. Get that? We’ve gone from 159 workers supporting every retired person to fewer than three workers supporting every retiree. And it’s going down. You don’t need an advanced math degree to figure this one out: Social Security is spending more than it’s bringing in. Far more. Its own Board of Trustees has said that it will be bankrupt within twenty years. That doesn’t mean it won’t exist. It means that either the government will pay you less than it promised, or it will have to raise taxes to make up the shortfall. Most likely, both. Sounds about right for an entitlement program, doesn’t it? Starts out small, but just keeps growing and growing until it collapses under its own weight. But let’s indulge in a fantasy and say that Social Security is perfectly designed, perfectly balanced, and efficiently run. And that you would get every dollar you were promised. You’d still have a major problem if that’s all that you’re relying on. To illustrate, in 2017 the average monthly Social Security check was a little over $1,400. That’s under $17,000 a year—barely above the poverty line for a two-person household. Do you really want to live at the poverty line in retirement? Why in the world would you plan for that? But sadly, many people are. According to a recent study, 53 percent of un-retired baby boomers have no retirement savings. That means they’re planning to rely on Social Security for their retirement income. That’s them. Don’t let it be you.

Invest in Japan: Infrastructure Industry
The Japanese government welcomes global investment partners in the infrastructure industry. In 2016, Japan began privatizing airport management. Since then, Vinci, in partnership with Japanese companies, has managed airports serving Osaka, including Kansai International Airport (KIX). Thanks to their management expertise and increase of foreign tourists, KIX has been welcoming more and more flights and passengers.

‘Made by our hands’: Lebanese women preserve tradition as a path to empowerment
MENNA – meaning ‘from us’, or ‘made by our hands’ in Arabic – is a nation-wide network of over 650 rural and refugee women producers and cooperatives in Lebanon. In 2015, Amel Association International – a grantee of UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality – launched its first permanent MENNA shop in Beirut, giving network members a year-round space to sell their handmade goods to the public. This video follows the story of a rare, traditional bread called Mallet El Smid and its journey from southern Lebanon to the MENNA shop in Beirut. The Mawasem El Dayaa Women’s Cooperative is among the last producers of this signature bread and one of 14 rural women’s cooperatives to benefit from the vocational trainings and market opportunities offered by Amel Association’s MENNA project. This video is part of the knowledge initiative of UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality “Building Resilience in Fragility: Women’s Empowerment in Action” supported by the Government of Japan.
