Are there any proposed systems of running the government like a corporation?
Has there ever been a legitimately proposed system whereby either the entire government or the executive branch of it was run the way a corporation is usually supposed to - more specifically, with set performance targets, merit pay and performance bonuses to everyone involved? (USA clearly doesn't count since the President and main people at the top get fixed salary no matter what results).
"legitimately proposed" is a wee bit subjective, so I will take anything that is more legitimate than "a random guy ranting on a blog post" type proposals. Ideally something serious enough to merit publishing a book, or an article in scholarly publication, a Wikipedia article; or attracted an organized group of >100 official supporters, outside Facebook.
