If you have an apartment house that you aren't managing well, you can hire a
management company to do it for you. There are cities that contract out
ambulance services, garbage collection, and even fire fighting services, in
order to save money. Why not contract out the entire government to a large
corporation who could manage the country professionally?

If this idea caught on, then corporations would have to compete against each
other to win bids. If countries adopted this idea, government would be reduced
to the boring task of keeping the streets clean, and making the trains run on
