Episode description: Atlantic Monthly correspondent Eric Schlosser and Lance Corcoran, vice president of California's Correctional Officers Association, discuss the economics and politics of privately run prisons, which house about 5% of America's 1.8 million prisoners. Are these private prisons saving the taxpayers money? If so, at what other costs? Does a free-market approach to incarceration lead to improved conditions and tighter security or to abuses and corruption? [cc]
