    • There is not enough gold in Fort Knox to build,
      and upgrade the needed facilities to house inmates
      males and females, juveniles and adults.
      The economy
      has been good for quite some time now, when this
      changes, the units of government will be wanting some
      third party to do so due to other uses of tax monies,
      and here is where the REIT's come in to the game

    • my ignorance, but it seems that many of you on
      several of the private corrections boards are using the
      same logic to predict big returns, even when stocks
      decline throughout the sector. The standard research
      information, earnings ratio, etc, don't seem to have much
      validity here. I once had a boss who said that if he did
      not get 10% return on investment, he would sell the
      business and put the money in the bank, yet many RFP
      responses are now coming in with an ROI of 6-8%. The markey
      sees big returns in other areas, and even if logic
      didtates that this industry should be doing great things,
      it isn't. Add that to the general public queasiness
      about privatizing corrections, and it seems that
      investment here becomes counter intuitive.
