What does the future hold for the USPS as far as rate increases? Will e-commerce be able to sustain a doubling, tripling, or quadrupling of package rates?

Many people in the know have complained over the years that the USPS has not has the liberty to improve its operations and increase profits. But what's happened is not going to result in operational improvements but service reductions. And that means an even greater inroad by private courier / package companies.
