I received a message from a reader with a link:
Probably not as interesting to your NY readers, but Wrigley is back on the market.
Can’t say I like the cubs, but you have to give credit (?) to their fans, 100 years of painful loss and they still love the cubs.
I’m guessing most of the fans would also like to see Bush given a 3rd, 4th, or 100th term to see if he could actually succeed.
Nothing like blind faith, I guess….
Thanks for the tip. Market Urbanism actually has readers across the world, not just NY.
As a fellow White Sox fan, I would hate to have my hard earned money subsidize the enjoyment of those despised Cubs fans. But, by that same logic, the public financed the Sox’s ballpark. Should I feel guilty?…
Check out this econtalk podcast about externalities and subsidies. At 9:15, they discuss subsidies to sports teams.
