Yesterday I listed the quantitative metrics of my most popular posts. Today I will qualitatively identify what I think are my best posts (excluding guest posters, who are often good too, and cross-posts from other sites, like streets.mn, National Review, Move Forward, ULI, and Strong Towns, which are exceptional, and announcements, and working papers, and recently published articles, and infographics, and the Elements of Access series).
In reverse chronological order, because this is a blog:
- OUR USE OF IMPACT FACTORS IS BACKWARDS
- POLLUTION TAXES AND AN ENVIRONMENTAL TRUST FUND
- SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY – BEFORE I BOARD
- ARE ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS TRULY TRANSPORTATION BOTTLENECKS?
- FRONTIERS, OR VALUES AS INSTRUMENTS
- DISPIRITED – A REVIEW OF SPRIT AIRLINES
- CHILD SAVINGS ACCOUNTS SHOULD REPLACE TAX CREDITS AND DEDUCTIONS
- IS REDUCING NEGATIVE EXTERNALITIES A POSITIVE EXTERNALITY? (OR ON BIKING AND VIKINGS)
- SCHOOL MILES VS. SCHOOL CHOICE
- PRICES BEFORE PAVEMENTS
- TWIN CITIES SEVEN-COUNTY SALES TAX FOR TRANSIT
- THE SALES TAX ON FUEL VS. THE GAS TAX
- SHOULD WE RAISE THE FEDERAL GASOLINE TAX?
- WHY BATTERIES WILL DEFEAT FUEL CELLS FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES
My output is, as the economists would say, lumpy. This is due to the vagaries of my day job, as well as how inspired or annoyed I feel on a given day. Aside from streets.mn posts, I don’t really know what I will be writing or posting next year.
