If its jointly funded between private and public there is a lower ROI threshold. And again... Please stop using the word profit. We should be considering ROI, not profit.
That's the corporatist aka fascist model—a mix of private and govt. Of course the mercantilists love this set up.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
