Republicans and neoliberals force feed Americans too many fallacies. The problem is these pseudo-realities are detrimental to our pocketbooks, health, and more. The U.S. Postal Service comes to mind anytime discussing efficiency as it is the clear example of a myth that can be dispelled thoroughly with apparent examples.

Anytime one hears that the private sector is more efficient, it is imperative that one realizes they are being asked to deny math. The U.S. Postal Service has been the poster child for attacks. Anyone reporting can show they are in fact, more efficient than the private sector shippers.

U.S. Postal Service efficient even as many try to destroy them

We should have, a robust private sector where individuals are free to create and trade. But as a society, we must ensure certain services stay in the public sector where profit is not the driving force.

In most cases, it is impossible for the private sector to be more efficient than the government. Why? Math. The private sector depends on paying high salaries to executives. It must make a profit to pay shareholders dividends. And where it pays its employees lower wages, many times they force the taxpayer to supplement their low wage employees with welfare. Consider reading "Myth 5: The private sector is more efficient than the public sector."

Unfortunately, slogans that appeal to people morally and emotionally are much more powerful at crerting people's beliefs, than actual evidence from reality that appeals to people's rational intellect. Private sector "efficiency" is created by eliminating customer service. So in service industries like the post office whose job is to provide letter and parcell services to its customers, private sector efficiencies can't work unless customers are willing to put up with worse service from the "service provider" companies. Whenever a public service company (e.g an electric or phone utility) is privatized, the first thing to go is the customer service department, so you can never again talk to an actual human being who will deal with failures of your electrical or phone service, or billing errors, or any of the other problems that require the company to serve the needs that its customers are paying to have served.
