This project determines the cost of maintaining the postal service currently. It explores whether this cost is justifiable on the grounds of "binding the Nation together" or if these costs are "impairing the overall value of such service to the people". Whether these costs are viewed as reasons for continued postal deficits or seen as the need for radical changes in the structure and operation of the postal service (even to the point of creating a private corporation from it) will determine the future course of action in regard to it.
