This chapter responds to Debra Satz’s paper. It argues that a more expansive conception of accountability, which addresses the structural transformation of governance, includes concerns about distortion and equality. Through examples of security and military privatization, Dickinson maintains that such privatization has enabled the expansion of executive power and the fragmentation and diffusion of governmental authority, threats to accountability with serious consequences for democracy.
