Why are we talking about market pressure in the context of public services planned and mainly funded by governments and public agencies? Just because legacy systems such as much of the NYC subway were created by market conditions many decades ago, what connection does that have to the allocation of public funds for their operation and maintenance today?

One could say that such decisions are affected by political pressure, but that's a totally separate thing from market pressure.

Don't ask people not to debate a topic. Just stop making debatable assertions. Problem solved.
