Private management removes politics

Parks and Rec are often a political football in budget wars. Warren Meyer describes how private management of public resources can turn parks from a sink to a source. It is an example of a private and public partnership that can benefit both. See his Public Testimony on Private Parks Management.

One of the problems Meyers encounters is the modern paradigm of evil business. This is despite many years of example to the contrary. If your business is the outdoor camping experience, you will not make a profit by paving over the wilderness.

Check out Meyer’s presentation notes and see what can be done. Contrast that to the difficulty in trying to sell the benefits of the private sector over the proven problems with governmental bureaucracy.
