>> entice people to move downtown by making the place functional and livable.

It's quite clear that low tax rates attract new development dollars, much more so than transit/walkability/etc.

That said, who cares?

Maybe the goal should not be to get MORE people to live downtown, but simply to make the downtown a better place to live for the existing residents.

The great thing about most lefties is that they think with their heart rather than their head.
So when lefties try and sell their ideas using numbers (money), they can't win, because the goal of most lefties can't be measured in dollars and cents.

In other words, if you lefties want to pile up more victories in this city, I would stop talking about money altogether and just focus on livability. By refusing to even discuss money/numbers, you will take away the tool that righties use to show the inferiority of your ideas.

Just as there is no logical reason for buying candy, good advertisers know that by appealing to the emotions of people, they can make lots of money. Does Coke debate the health aspects of their product? No, because there is none.

Fight the battle on emotions, not facts and you lefties will probably have much more success.
