Credibly promising to be irresponsible...since 2004!
In fairness, just knowing there are middle and upper-middle class garbage inspectors out there provides me with very high existence value.
I'd love to hear your response to the Humes and Walsh Innes pieces. The one blaring things in the Humes piece that I couldn't get over is that if recycling is so cost effective, why do people have to be forced to do it? Is there a public choice story to tell? For the average consumer, the $1.00 they might get from recycling their soda cans, might not outweigh the costs of sorting and taking the cans to the recycling center. But what prevents a middle man from figuring out a way to turn a profit by getting the cans from the people? Perhaps the cities' very own recycling program, which isn't about making a profit, but making everyone feel good about themselves. And don't get me started on the junk mail. Perhaps if the government wasn't subsidizing mail delivery, there might be less junk mail going around.
Never mind my request. I see that the article you linked to was the response.
