New series takes on problems with privatization

The CTA’s Ventra rollout has gone about a smoothly as a drive across the surface of the moon.

Perlstein outlines what he calls the Municipal-Industrial Complex that’s taking over larger and larger chunks of our public services, and how unlike politicians, we can’t vote them out.
