Selling the Circus

Mongolia is selling its State Circus, and that’s not all. Other stuff on the to-be-privatized list includes: The Mongolian Camel Wool company, Ulaanbaatar’s Number Three Hospital and Number Two Power Station, the national airline (MIAT), and the Mongolia Railway. I’m still hung up on that State Circus. (Via Mackinac.)
