I receive regular updates from “In the Public Interest” and find them to be very valuable. I learn about privatization of schools, prisons, libraries, and virtually everything else that is usually considered to be public. I urge you to sign up and receive updates. Unlike my blog, their emails are typically once a week or once every two weeks, aggregating many stories from across the nation.

In the Public Interest is a national think tank that studies public goods and services and sends out a few emails that are helpful for people tracking privatization and trying to protect the common good.
