Government Sales and Auctions
What does the U.S. government have going for it when it comes to public sales and auctions? Diversity. From Treasury bills to wild horses and houses, you name it and a government agency probably sells it. Best of all from the consumer's standpoint, the government is not out to make a profit, so most items are sold at or below cost or fair market value. Plus, purchasing from the government helps to defer cost of running the government, which saves taxpayers' dollars.
