Jon D. Michaels CONSTITUTIONAL COUP: Privatization's Threat to the American Republic

With news of Blackwater founder, Erik Prince, with the assistance from Oliver North, proposing a global, private spy network to circumvent official U.S. intelligence agencies, and counter a "Deep State" seeking to undermine Donald Trump's presidency, we take a look at the trend towards privatization and tensions with a "Pax Administrativa".

Professor Jon D. Michaels’ scholarship includes constitutional law, administrative law, national security law, the separation of powers, presidential power, regulation, bureaucracy, and privatization. Before joing the UCLA Law School faculty, he clerked for Justice David Souter of the U.S. Supreme Court.

We discuss his book, CONSTITUTIONAL COUP: PRIVATIZATION’S THREAT TO THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC, which is both a history and an analysis of privatization, and the rise of what he calls ” Pax Administrativa.” It is published by Harvard University Press.
