Big business behind bars


On this episode of the Cost of Everything, we take a closer look at the prison business. Host Christy Ai explores with prison manager Anthony Gangi and prison educator consultant Connie Alleyne how much it costs to run a federal or state prison compared to a private jail system, and which brings more revenue. The host and panel analyze the real cost to the taxpayer to keep an inmate locked up, and where else in the world the prison system is such a big money maker.
