Boosting the United States Postal Service

I wrote last month about things the U.S. Postal Service can do to boost revenue as it appears to be struggling. Here are some ideas.

  1. Raise the price of stamps, including the Forever stamp.
  2. Create a department of the U.S.P.S. that is fully digital and allows for its own levels of encryption for email. Branded, guaranteed to U.S.P.S.
  3. Create a NEW GOVERNMENT LEVEL postal service with high priority and best security. From post card up to something big like a bicycle?
  4. Create a NEW CREDIT CARD that benefits the U.S.P.S. and offers special discounts?
  5. A NEW MEMBERSHIP shipping program for individuals and businesses.
  6. A re-envisioned partnership with UPS, FEDEX and other services, maybe even Uber and Grubhub for same-day deliveries?

This is a repost and rewrite from scratch because some of my web sites were hacked a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t have an uncorrupted/usable backup of this blog site that included my most recent posts.
