#12 / What This Guy Doesn't Get

The picture above, of Elon Musk, comes from an article titled, "What Elon Musk Doesn't Get About Urban Transit." Jarrett Walker, who wrote the article, is a transit expert. 

Walker's article is relatively short, and is definitely worth reading, if you care about transportation policy. In summary, Walker says that Musk is wrong about transit because Musk evaluates transit from an "individual" instead of from a "social" perspective.

That difference between "ME" and "WE" makes all the difference in the world. Building good transit system is only one example of where "individualism" falls short!

Notes for further discussion:

  • Health Care
  • Land Use
  • Education
  • Etc.
