Abstract

This symposium essay assesses the government’s private ownership experience during the financial crisis, and provides a near-term critique of the corporate governance structures utilized by the government. U.S. government corporate ownership is likely to remain quite rare, but this essay concludes by drawing on the recent experience to set forth principles to guide the future structure, monitoring and retention of private government investment.
