Sunday Open Thread
I’ll on my way to Hawaii for the week, so posting will probably be a bit lighter than normal. If anyone wants to submit a guest post, now would be an excellent time to do so.
As a conversation piece, there’s this New York Times article on the new private high speed train service in Italy from Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori. I’m not at all enthused about the idea of competition in rail service, as I believe market forces and competition don’t usually work out well in practice, especially for transportation. But it will be interesting to see how this plays out in Italy.
