I think that India Post is doing a fine job in this regard. I usually prefer it over the various private courier services because i have found the services reliable, efficient, cheap and omnipresent. I think that PO as bank has also help them keep afloat as the interest rates are usually higher. Although India post is as old but whether they will pass the test of time or not is highly depend on technology upgrade and services.

Yeah. Privatization will eliminate all government inefficiencies. Let's outsource even the military and defense. Who needs governments when private firms can do it all?

"Reading a report?" That's it? You read a report? Whose report? With information that's groundless, patently absurd and only credible to a mouth-breather who watches nothing but Fox News? What report, Mr. Roques? Written by whom? Funded by whom? For what purpose? Come on, Roques! You need to a) name your source and b) qualify that source as objective, disinterested and reliable. It's nonsense like this that gives the Internet a bad name.

Public vs Private

A few months ago I was reading a report that stated that with the amount of money used for public education, the government could pay private schools to every child on the public education system (that's not in the US, btw).

That simply illustrates the inneficiency of the government, when it comes to management. 

Charge companies more than normal users for mail, that's one step forward. But when will those companies change to email only?
