    Okay, I found an answer to my now question above.... The answer is Microsoft will not build in Seattle....only around Seattle in communities whose leaders have agreed to certain stipulations to receive the funds.

    So Microsoft (shareholders) are free to spend their COH. However, those smarter than me on the board explain how the lion's share of the funds will add to the supply of affordable housing. 1) $225M will be for subsidized construction loans for developers to supply more affordable housing....okay this is an incentive to build more housing (at least in the near term). 2) $250M will be to provide loans AT MARKET RATES to households making up to 60% of local median income. Now I am fuzzy on how market rate loans will help matters. Would the households not otherwise qualify for a market rate loan? If not, why not (Ratios, credit, etc...)? 3) $25M to the homeless and nonprofit trough....will do nothing to add to affordable housing supply.

    ... free-market Not that you are advocating for anything else, but rent control and mandated affordable housing will exacerbate the problem while warping the demand/supply of housing in Nashville

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread! This is still going on? I thought everyone was compliant like myself and begged-off after Mark directed us to the coffee house. I will post regarding the scooter controversy ...which is actual mass transportation. The regulations for scooters are not the issue. The initial ban was the overreach and I felt Metro did a decent job of implementing a policy to deal with the public's (and my) concerns. Where Metro has completely dropped the ball and is part of the problem is in NOT enforcing their own scooter regulations. Metro should have a team or 2 drive around and confiscate scooters in the right of way and have the scooter company pay a sizable fine (that they may pass along to their member) for its return. also , have some motorcycle cops actually stop and ticket scooter riders not following the traffic laws.... enforcement will go a looooooong way IMO.

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Agreed. The framing of the debate IS always interesting. Since we all agree that a truly unfettered free-market is not a reality why do you insist on referring to one? I referred to socialism and communism as the opposite extremes of the referenced free-market, I dd not imply you were a fan-boi of such a failed philosophy. I would hazard all on this board are capitalist and we are just debating whys and wherefores....

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    There is no ‘pure’ anything except in theory. i will put the 'reality' version of a free-market up against the 'reality' version of socialism and communism and win every time.
