    There could be an alignment between government and private interests in that both could benefit from lower-cost access to the Moon. So, like with the public-private programs to the ISS, the government could largely fund the companies to develop the craft and to use them to deliver crew to a lunar base. Then the companies could sell tickets to individuals who would like to move to the growing base / settlement.
