Charette on Public Goods

Charette on Public Goods

Public goods are “hidden in front of us, every day”. People benefit from clean air, clean water, street lights, public parks and beaches, a 911 call system, fire protection, food and drug safety, ports, public health services, schools, bridges, jogging trails and scores more.  The list is enormous.  But most people are oblivious to the source of these things they enjoy.  Moreover, mainstream economics, as taught in the colleges and universities, has a negative interpretation of public goods and no concept of non-market production. The absence of “public goods” in our national discourse denies citizens the ability to make decisions about things that matter mightily to the quality of their lives and their communities.
