    The Reason Foundation is some kind of parody performance art, right?

  • Joe Linton

    I wish – I certainly didn’t give them the legitimacy of responding to them via full Streetsblog article rebuttal. It is interesting how car transportation is such a blind spot for otherwise small-government libertarians.

    I brought it up on a libertarian-ish urbanist facebook group (Market Urbanism), and the proposal was almost universally questioned, more or less.

    The proposal isn’t libertarian. The leading charitable explanation offered for why Reason published it is to nudge policy in a ‘more libertarian’ direction – but even that’s suspect, given that liberal urbanists are touting more libertarian policies successfully than Reason is. Reason is getting outflanked on its own turf by its own ooponents.

    Spending hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars instead of enacting libertarian friendly economical policies (that progressives often like! Like parking and zoning reforms) is not libertarian, there’s no arguing around that.
