Description:
While efficient communications are vital for advanced industrial societies, the United States is poised to enter the 21st century with the U.S. Postal Service, a government monopoly established in the 18th century. In this age of personal computers, fax machines, and e-mail, the Postal Service is quickly becoming obsolete. This book explores the pros and cons of privatizing the Postal Service and abolishing its monopoly on carrying first-class mail.
