Summary: Amtrak, the U.S. Postal Service, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Chicago Housing Authority--all are examples of a controversial institution, the government corporation. This hybrid organizational form incorporates the best features of public and private management to accomplish tasks that are unsuited for commercialization or ordinary public administration, whether disposing of hazardous wastes or building a regional rapid transit system. First cre moreated at the dawn of the twentieth century, government corporations are now prevalent throughout the United States.

Has the experiment with government corporations worked? Do they have a future?

This comprehensive assessment of government corporations sets aside ideological presuppositions to reexamine the record and identify both the successes and failures of this unique arrangement. By viewing public administration as an experiment, the author challenges readers to think creatively about the government corporation and ways to reinvent it, capitalizing on its strengths and compensating for its shortcomings.

This is a book that will be as stimulating for scholars as for practitioners--from public housing specialist of today to the spaceport developer of tomorrow. less
