Matthew D. Mitchell, Ph.D., is a Senior Research Fellow and Director of the Project for the Study of American Capitalism at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. He is also a professor of economics. In his writing and research, he specializes in public choice economics and the economics of government favoritism toward particular businesses, industries, and occupations. Ride-sharing programs such as Uber and Lyft are seemingly undermining public bus and transportation services in timeliness, flexibleness, and reasonable prices.  Should our government give more public services to the private sector? Dr. Mitchell discusses whether the private sector provides a better option for public transportation.
