    I find Seattle to be a very strange case in general, and I wonder if anyone has any opinions on the city and its policies/culture etc. If I may offer a place to begin, please take this article here…

    I’m currently researching the liberty stance on the environment, so I can’t really offer any personal critique until I at least read this for one thing….
    (https://mises.org/sites/default/files/Law%2C%20Property%20Rights%2C%20and%20Air%20Pollution_2.pdf)

    I have a few surface opinions but I want to think them through a little bit before I begin to speak on them.

    Have a great day folks.

    What does anyone think about the seattle times? ive had their app on my phone and found it a rather sane view a lot of times. Their facebook feed is a little odd, but there are articles i’ve read on the app that are not bad in terms of not really including too much opinion and having extra facts and any explanations compared to a lot of other sources. I will say i mostly just read their accounts of larger stories and do not read a lot of the smaller opinion pieces or such.

    Their minimum wage is higher than the fed. minimum. That’s enough to keep me away.

    But in response to the article, assuming the problem they are trying to prevent is overuse of the trash dumps, the simple solution is to stop subsidizing them. If people have to pay the entire cost of disposing of their trash, they will throw only as much away as can be put somewhere. Because as space becomes limited, the price rises, restricting wasteful use of the dump.
