- It's a great idea even in places where the government isn't strapped for cash.Feb 22, 2013
- Could be looking at a new form of public funding here. I like the idea of being able to earmark dollars to a project that you want to see done. That's ultimate taxation with representation. Understandably not all projects are as popular and some need funding, but if you did something like ranked choice bidding with your cash, i.e. if the first project you vote for does not reach funding, or is over funded, the money goes to the next project on your list you could pad that. You'd definitely have a hell of a time funding a bridge to nowhere, unless you were a really good sales person.
I think people underestimate the power of what just a small amount of cash can do. Even in say a city of 500K, if everyone chips in $1 for a project, that's a lot of capital.Feb 22, 2013
- Wow, makes me nostalgic for Rosslyn, Virginia's Skywalks (all torn down in the 2000s except for Gateway Park and Freedom park).Feb 22, 2013
- great motivation for public funding. and with names legally on walls, less people will graffiti buildings: if people graffiti in the Netherlands.Feb 22, 2013
- That's a nice thought, but it seems that your not entirely familiar with the 'tagger mindset'.Feb 22, 2013
- Very interesting post indeed. I don't recall that this project has been given a lot of publicity in Netherlands this moment which is odd as I feel that the project, the idea, the execution, all deserve credits.Feb 22, 2013
