Chambers of Communists locally here in the Twin Cities metro like to pimp for choo choo trains to herd sheeple to their ‘sustainable housing’ projects.
Many people love to use government to protect their businesses from competitors or to get taxpayer funded stuff. Economic development is all the rage, and that amounts to taking money from people to bribe companies to hire people or to re-locate their business. It’s all a con, and every town, city, and state has a staff of planners and econ development people who are paid to take nice trips and schmooz with people. Central planning always fails.
Nobody talks about what people would have done with the money if they had been allowed to keep it.
