The US imprisons more people that any other country in the world. By a large amount. As a result prisons have become a huge industry and private companies for years worked hard to get in on some of the action. In 1982 they succeeded, and ever since then their numbers and power have been increasing as our country allows them to build more and more facilities. In this episode we talk about how this industry got started, how they make their money and how their power and control is growing. It might surprise you some of the things that are legal in this line of business.
