    I haven't followed Yang closely, could you point me to what he wants to abolish in favor of UBI?

    Innovation would happen with or without Amazon. I have my grievances with giving blank checks to rich corporations, but I don't hold innovation against them. The forklift truck itself is an...

    That is a red herring. I am fairly comfortable asserting that no GM employee, at any level, took a cut to their base compensation rate during the bankruptcy. Lots of them, both salary and hourly,...

    That was due to a tax charge; it was not an operating loss.

    Employees pay for operating losses with their jobs.

    San Francisco's MSA has grown by about 10% since 2010, which was in line with Miami's 11%. Seattle's has grown by almost 15%. The only Florida metro area to perform better than it was Orlando. ...

    Tax havens are generally not good economic hubs. Rich people may move those places to sit on their money, but ambitious people don't move to those places to create things. The most booming...

    Florida and Nevada also have the luxury of using tourism to subsidize their infrastructure costs.

    But if the tax rate is 0, how would Michigan reap the benefit? Those 50 people would not likely ever offset what they would cost the state.

    In reality, those jobs wouldn't come to Michigan even...

    Short answer: no. Long answer: no.

    Icahn employs about 50 people. That wouldn't even fill up one of Detroit's new apartment buildings.

    It's because the city requires it. Not the developers.

    I'm inclined to accept numbers at face value. There has been no substantial change in DTW's status as an airport hub in those years, and Canada has always been right across the river.

    Post-2016 international visitors to the U.S. is down, so it will be interesting to see if Detroit continues to increase.

    What are the dates? It could be that the route is seasonal. LAS-DTW wasn't on their list of recent route cancellations. I also see that there is a non-stop from LAS to DTW operating today...

    Yes, I agree with that. People in NY Metro will tolerate a longer commute time, but not a 50 mile commute. Even commuting to Manhattan from areas within NYC can take over an hour.

    Either way, it's not very likely. Fifty miles from Manhattan in any direction gets you to the very edge of the serviceable commuter bus and rail area. People in the NY area are much more likely to...

    Super commuting is not that common in Metro NY. You're far more likely to find people in Metro Detroit who drive more than 50 miles per day than you do in Manhattan. One summer in college I worked...

    Absolutely. It's the humans conditioning the animals to be violent that is the problem. I remember back in the 90s or early 2000s there was a hysteria going around Detroit about Pitbulls and how...

    Toronto has a development green belt. That is the biggest factor in the cost there. It is one of the most expensive places in North America, but the median income in Toronto isn't much higher than...

    So they paid $117M to the state of Michigan. How much went to Detroit? Meanwhile, on the subject of money that actually goes to the city of Detroit...

    Weird comment. The city went through a massive bankruptcy while all those casinos and stadiums were supposedly paying the bills.

    Didn't the inner ring suburbs object to the I-75 widening project?

    I don't know why graffiti is being characterized as a Third World phenomenon. You probably won't find nearly as much of it in the "Third World" as in the "First World."
