Government-Run Business

A government-run business performs commercial actions on behalf of a government. The US government has several of these, including the passenger railroad company Amtrak, the United States Postal Service and federal mortgage corporations Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Businesses like these, while owned by the government, provide public services and are legally separate from the federal government to remain nonpartisan.
