By Kirby Liberty Harris No government does everything bad and bloated. We need to privatize it like Elon Musk is doing. It is coming out how bad NASA flubbed all the historic events.

By Kirby Liberty Harris Wrong, space X is a perfect example. No one tried because the government would not let them. The monopoly forced all others out.

By William Dykeman how did the government stop them then? no one tried because no one had that much capital and resource dummy

By Kirby Liberty Harris First, that was 40 ago, which was 1979. Most of the stuff had been badly done by then. And that link is about how was the Government used private companies to build stuff for them, not letting them launch their own crafts into space, like now.

By William Dykeman well of course there was a partner ship between private and government i am not opposed to that in fact that seems to be the way to go private companies guided by the authority of a central state, best model if you study economies over the centuries

By Kirby Liberty Harris But you miss the point. Of course there has always been a partnership, but what the private could do was very strictly limited by the government. IF it wasn't then like it isn't now, then the private would have then done it better like they are now.

By William Dykeman the government made the rules but private contractors did amazing work do not denigrate them

By Kirby Liberty Harris I wasn't denigrating the private companies. The opposite. I was denigrating the government. If the government had gotten out of the way, then the private sector would have done it 100% better back then.

By Kirby Liberty Harris Saying I don't understand economics isn't a counter argument.
