Bryan Caplan Has a Vision of the New Jerusalem
For Bryan Caplan, the New Jerusalem looks something like Tyson's Corner:
EconLog, Tyler on Tyson's, Bryan Caplan: Library of Economics and Liberty: I'm baffled by comments that call Tyson's [Corner] "ugly." It's Beverly Hills in Virginia, as far as I'm concerned. But then again, I was baffled when Alex Tabarrok told me he missed Oakland, California. That's what I call "ugly." When a big developer builds an area from scratch, it wants to maximize real estate values by making residents happy. What's the result? Clean, convenient, corporate living, Big Box stores, and McMansions - not Oakland.
