it’s not a “slur,” so to speak, but it’s a typical NYC/DC/SoCal snob saying “housing is cheap in these states because they’re all backwater shitholes populated by low-IQ hicks. As opposed to myself, who is amongst the greatest people in the world just because I chose to pay $3,000 a month for a 250 sq.ft. studio in Read more

Ah yes, the usual “well, I/he didn’t explicitly say it (even though it’s what I really meant) so it’s your fault for interpreting it the way I actually meant it (but was vague enough so I could weasel out of it)“ cop-out.

Exactly. Regulations can drive demand too. We’ve seen this with tax incentives/shelters as well as growth barriers like green zones or limited building permits.

I’m sure he’s really happy about being an auto journalist in Manhattan; I cannot imagine there’s a single downside to it.

Incredibly most modern carmakers aren’t even aware how far away you can spot an egg from behind the wheel. Read more

Out of curiosity, where do you live? From my experience in numerous Midwestern cities, it seems like the small car stigma has actually gotten much worse over the past decade, and any parity reached with Europe has come from them also choosing to prioritize larger vehicles. Anecdotal evidence only goes so far, but that Read more
