I was certainly never confused--but Shmessy was right, I didn't frame the proposition very well--which is better for Massachusetts: BLX or NSRL?Is anyone STILL confused by this??? Speak up now, please.
If all it comes down to is $ invested in the project (including inflation-adjusting on the bonds 30 years out when they're theoretically retired blah blah blah) vs. a reasonable projection for increase in state GDP generated by the enhanced infrastructure/connectivity, jobs generated, multiplier effect/increased velocity of money, then perhaps it is a simple question.
And, how do you know it's a question that will never be asked by anyone, ever? I just did, after all. Resources are limited, decisions must be made, priorities must be established, then rationalized, justified. If one gets built but not the other, then, it seems to me the question will have been asked--and answered.
