Here's what Ed Hightower has to say about it...
TURNING THE GOVERNMENT OVER TO CORPORATIONS – by Jim Hightower http://www.minutemanmedia.org/HIGHTOWER%20062806.htm
While George W, the congress, and the media have us all looking south to what they call the "invasion" of America by impoverished illegal immigrants, or looking east to what they call an "endless threat" to America from hordes of fanatical Islamic terrorists - there's another, very real, but very quiet, siege taking place on our people's government... from within.
Far from being a movement of desperate poor people, this assault on democracy is being mounted by extremely wealthy and powerful guys in pinstripe suits. Theirs is a corporate assault on our public resources, public institutions, public functions - and the very idea of the common good. They fly the flag of "privatization," and their goal is to take over our public sector, essentially eliminating it and substituting corporate governance.
In an important book titled, The Fox In the Hen House, Si Kahn and Elizabeth Minnich document the startling extent to which this takeover has already happened. Corporate lobbyists, corporate-funded think tanks, and corporate-owned politicians have been pushing privatization (which is nothing but a euphemism for corporatization) for decades, with Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton willingly turning over public purposes, assets, and control to these private, anti-democratic, profit-seeking interests.
