Tyler Cowen has had, for a few weeks now, a campaign on his blog to increase the prices of parking.
Yeah, I get it, decreasing traffic, or something. (And I do mean “or something.” Because it’s not clear what the other benefits might be. I mean, rationing spaces? Why is rationing spaces by ability to pay better than rationing spaces by who gets there first?)
But really, there’s a res ipsa thing going on here. He wants to raise your parking prices. Talk about the dismal science.
