Cardozo School of Law and author of Outsourcing Sovereignty: Why Privatization of Government Functions Threatens Democracy and What We Can Do About It, discusses the increasing privatization of government, the new phenomenon of the hiring out of the actual enforcement functions of the state, the lack of adequate oversight and criminal accountability and how the many domestic functions of government being privatized are making it even worse and the beginnings of Congressional interest in curtailing the worst excesses.
