On Dec. 5, 2016 The New Yorker’s Amy Davidson wrote “Transitions” about the president elect’s cabinet and staff appointments and conflicts of interest. “Trump has a shot at being the country’s worst President but Americans are not in the worst position they have ever been in from which to confront him.”

James Surowiecki wrote “Trump Sets Private Prisons Free” about the Correction Corporation Of America and other private prisons new lease on life with the new administration. Chris Patella of Bates College and others find private prisons to be less cost effective than government ones despite cutting corners. “Worse, private prisons have an obvious incentive to keep people inside as long as possible. America has more people in prison than any other and private prisons are part of this system of mass incarceration.
