The WSJ article’s line of thinking is typical of Wall Street. It’s all about short-term solutions for problems, which in the end make the problem even worse. I doubt anyone on Wall Street gives any thought to the externalities involved in promoting an auto-centric society. I also doubt there can ever be a true economic recovery as long as this line of thinking persists.
“Street designers seem to be asking themselves, "How can I make it less unpleasant for pedestrians to interact with cars on this street"?, when what they should be asking themselves is "Is there a need for us to have cars on this street at all?"”
