Rather we need to consider alternatives and weigh the pros and cons of each alternative before making a decision.
As an example, one pro factor for Keystone is that this pipeline is going to change oil flows across North America. This change could be a catalyst for shutting down 50 or 60-year old pipelines, which have a higher tendency to fail than new ones. This "pro" does not make it to the mainstream media. The anti-pipeline activist will ignore it for Keystone cannot have one positive attribute in their minds.
I suspect this recent accident is a case of cognitive dissonance: the operator adopted a culture that newer pipelines with modern technology cannot fail--at least in the first decade of operations. Hence this pipeline was not monitored that well. We shall soon see.
Another reason why raising minimum wages has little effect on the labor market is that lower wage earners are less likely to take their money out of their local area than high salary workers. The money circulates locally more, and this employs more local people.
Economics has so many interesting angles to it. It's amazing how ideologues can claim it's so simple.
I lost a chunk in Blackberry a few years back. They've never recovered. If you gamble tge market you better be prepared to cut your losses and move on. Their investments were their responsibilities to monitor, not his.
The positive side, he provided jobs and paid salaries. The bad side gaming in Atlantic City is not profitable.
