NIMBYism in Cambridge


Matt Yglesias highlights how Cambridge's progressive political orientation dissolves when residents think about local land use issues:

[M]aybe Cambridge residents just don't care about the welfare of their fellow citizen. But if you put it to them squarely, I bet they'd say they do. These are voters who favor, quite sincerely, progressive taxation, and a robust social safety net. They just don't think of these local policy issues in the same terms, as questions that have broad implications for human welfare and aren't just of parochial interest.
