Challenging the widely held notion that there is a clear boundary separating the public and private sector, "The Emergence of the Business State" argues that the public sector contains a group of federally established corporations that mirror the structures and processes of the private sector. Calling this group the Business State, the book offers the first comprehensive analysis of the various types of federal corporations involved and assesses the degree to which their structure promotes responsiveness to executive direction, congressional concerns, and the public.
