You really don't have to read the Business Journal to better understand "private/public partnerships".
The private folks tell great stories of unlimited successes, then take minimum risks in any "deal", and get whatever profits may be found.
The public suckers, by the way, that would be YOU, end up being represented by elected clowns with no business or negotiating experience, are forced to make rushed decisions and commitments before anyone can actually figure out what the deal is, and end up picking up the tab for under-performing fiascoes, sometimes for many decades.
The list of examples is too long to include in its entirety, but let's just offer wealthy Cordish Corporation, a Maryland "developer" who thanks taxpayers in KCMO for covering the P&L District bond shortfall every year to the tune of $15 million.
And will continue to do so through the year 2030.
And now,on to Mike's hotel, the streetcar expansion, the UMKC downtown arts campus, the airport terminal,and who knows what else.
The public may learn how these "partnerships" work, but the electeds in KCMO NEVER do.
