  8. Why isn't healthcare in America treated as a public good?

    All other developed nations have universal health care, paid for through a variety of methods. I understand the accident of history that caused the healthcare system to become essentially a bargaining chip for the unions, but now we have so fewer unions. So why do Americans put up with such a dysfunctional system, now rapid moving towards "cost sharing" which will only serve to bankrupt more and more individuals?

  13. Housing - should cities be allowed to build it as a commodity - e.g., electricity. Taxes now main component of housing cost.

    Some cities are not big enough, and most do not have housing for homeless people or even working people. If cities could decide what would make their size optimal, and then provide housing - in the way that cities sometimes now provide electricity or water if there is not a vendor of these services - cities could build to an optimal size, and provide the kind of housing that meets the population needs.

  15. Did colonization help colonizing nations?

    It's clear that some groups benefited (many producers got cheaper inputs/resources than otherwise), but did nations as a whole benefit (at the expense of the colony)?

  19. Are Neighborhood Associations an advance in local representation?

    There are an ever growing proliferation of Neighborhood Associations throughout the country but the ones in Multnomah County Oregon have been in operation for over 40 years. They claim this is the new advance in political representation at the local level but the overall effect has been more control by fewer people who are even more parochial than the bureaucrats in Town Hall.
    www.portlandonline.com/ONI is the litmus for the program.
