Newsday and Free Markets
Mr. Akst has finally determined that the free market should dictate prices. He makes a great case for market prices rates for town owned dock space – as public space increase to market rates, private dock rates will come down due to the competition. Exactly, but it is difficult to determine why he does not apply the same solution to every other issue. His past comments about energy, health care, etc. are invariably focused upon how the government needs to fund the solutions. He must own a boat.
