      Hi, Harry. Nice metaphoric way to put it. But after the bonds are paid off, share the rents. Like Walt Ry points out, DC Metro generated far more site values than the cost of the subway. Recover it. Share it.


      there should be plenty of Rent-free land around the edges.

      Back in 10,000 BC.

      However, if there is much over after infrastructure - and perhaps a basic service or two - is paid for from Rent, let's give it back to the citizens who created it. However, I don't think there will be a much to distribute.

      It's the principle that counts.

      And there won't be much government either

      Yippee!
