MOTION: The Postal Service
Should Remain A Monopoly.
In conclusion, a monopoly on the postal service will be beneficial to the postal
service provider itself. Management and communications between the various
departments will be much more convenient with a centralized administration
center. Employees enjoy a more stable career in times of economic downturns as
well as higher incomes than most jobs. There will be maximum usage of equipment
and human resources on such a large-scale monopoly like the postal service.
Efficiency will be high.
A monopoly on the postal service, however, will not be beneficial to the
consumers in general. Consumers have hardly any variety of choice and the prices
are hardly competitive. The quality of customer service may be compromised as
there is hardly any fear of being outdone by a competitor and hence no pressure
to perform. In addition, there will be little incentive to innovate new products
to outdo competitors and the market will become stiff and 'closed'.
In a nutshell, whether you are in favor of the postal service's monopoly, it
really depends whether you are a consumer or a service provider.
