  1. 12s being in the same thread as Antioch has always struck me as very odd.

    double decker interstates and flying taxis and automated cars, remember??
  4. Nice to see them getting ahead of the curve with this. Also it seems like they do have more detailed plans of River North plans, so I assume NB will be relieved

    But I was told by anti transit folks that we would have self driving cars next year!

    The book is not anti capitalist in the least. Not sure which critique you’ve read, and if you had read the book you would know that it focuses on capital stock, inequality, and growth rates, and the effect of the world wars on all those things.

    Completely agree with this post. At the extremes incentives change. The revenue change from a top marginal rate of 39.6 to 3x will bring in less revenue. And that has to do with his income is earned. I encourage bond ( or anyone else) to read capital by piketty.
  10. Agreee completely. A far superior product is 1212, beautiful building that exudes luxury.

    Yes the Laffer curve he is referring to is junk science. It simply doesn’t work st a certain level of taxation and that makes intuitive sense to most. Below (if it works) I have attached federal tax collections through September. As you can see there is a SHARP dropoff stsrting in January when the new tax law took effect. Ironically this increased deficit spending is a stimulus right now, but is also exploding the government deficit in the later stages of an economic cycle.

    IKEA to Nashville

    Are you guys really upset ikea isn’t coming? A store not being in your city affects your feelings? Strange.
  13. I have to question when this would start. Perusing property records make it seem like sales are going extremely poorly for 505.

    Agreed that it is nice to have. I've had passport photos taken there, and it is convenient to have a full service post office within walking distance.

    I live in Hillsboro Village. It is going through a lot of change right now. The addition of the Moxy hotel/apartments/retail will further tie the neighborhood together. Once this development is finished it will further draw in the small restaurants on Belcourt in. It is exciting to watch. My wish is for the post office land to be sold and developed into a mixed use project.
