Private prisons (especially with slave labor) make the owners very wealthy, and they tend to buy a lot of influence with politicians, but I'm a little skeptical to the claim that it's essential for our economy to function. I'm sure it would take a hit, but one we'd come back from.

I'm no economist though

if you feel like mud you'll end up gold
