A must-read from Welch over at Reason about the state of city governments. It’s pathetic to see cities doling out millions in big projects while basic things like road repair and sanitation fall apart. This was my experience in Baltimore.

There is going to come a tipping point where our big cities will just collapse. Hopefully, we can pick up the pieces and put effective government in charge.

The problem is really nationwide. Governments — state, local and federal — are spending billions on dumb social spending and big projects while letting infrastructure and basic services fade. What the hell are we doing to this country?
