    Serious discussion on recasting dynamics (economically) of mix economy warranted WRM; giving specific consideration in this instance to conditions cited vis-a-vis New York’s exploding construction costs, complex municipal costs inure against much needed infrastructure rehabilitation nationally.

    All financial organizations really need is good communications infrastructure. Given the demagoguery and thuggish threats they’re subjected to by the pols of the city and country, I’m surprised they haven’t pulled up stakes and moved to some other country.

    You need to spell out the costs of this craziness. One cost is that it now costs $12 to cross the George Washington Bridge — some 75 years after the bridge was built, it has been paid for many times over.

    The tower should have been paid for by Saudi Arabia as an apology for propagating the vicious theology that led to 9/11.

    It must go up as a symbol of defiance, and should have been up in a year. Cost is not an issue. This is an important building, possibly the most important in America.

    This is about the only building I’d take this position on.
