Sunday Night Notes

I realize there has been much less posting here, but if you still want links you can follow me on twitter which seems to be more regular. @theoverheadwire

There are some interesting links today however:

I don't really think cities should compete to land new jobs. Especially for government funded jobs such as Northrup Grumman.
Wal Mart doesn't create new jobs. Tell us something we don't know.
So does this mean Smart Cars are PRT?
“Smart’s not a car in the traditional sense, it’s a high- style alternative to public transportation,”
What does urban authenticity mean?

On the subject of Wal-Mart, just look at the labels on most of the products sold there. Most say "Made In China". The real jobs made are in China or in shipping them (using up precious petroleum in the process) here to the stores.

No, Smart cars aren't PRT. I doubt that the spokesperson who was quoted even knows what PRT is. They were just trying to greenwash themselves as usual.
