This article will focus on the issue of transforming the U.S. Postal Service from its current organizational structure, and into a different (perhaps radically so) kind of organization. We'll touch on four possible scenarios, and expand on one or two of them. They are

  1. Privatization/lemon socialism -- the USPS spins off all its most profitable functions into fully private companies, leaving a shrunken rump to handle unprofitable necessities on the public dime.
  2. Current USPS "rescued" by removal of prefunding requirements and other measures, but basic structure remains.
  3. Convert USPS to a worker-owned cooperative.
  4. Restore USPS a fully public entity with worker self-management.
