What keeps the US Post Office from making money? The economy is bad. First Class mailing is shrinking at an alarming rate. And the USPS can’t seem to develop relevant new lines of business without treading on the toes of the private sector. The future looks bleak without some serious decisions from the top.
This stuff is relevant in the age of technology. There still will be a need for the physical delivery of a lot of stuff, especially to remote locations that are under-served by technology. And don’t forget the National Broadband Bill, while you’re at it!
