But then every time you need an electric fix, you have to go through the monolithic infrastructure agency, maybe wait until you can schedule water/gas/electric simultaneously. Sometimes you need agencies that cross jurisdictions, like the Port Authority which coordinates transport activities that impact the NYC area with NY and NJ. Maybe guns are the poster boy for this problem. You can't regulate guns in Chicago if they are unregulated in Mike Pence's Indiana. So I would prefer a national registration system, with local authorities in charge of local regs, but then at least they would be able to look up what residents bought in another state, require training, insurance, follow the trail of guns used in crime. 4 Proposition 13, which freezes California property taxes at 1975 levels, achieves the unusual feat of being rash direct democracy (variance), and locking in an outdated policy over the long term (bias).

Public-private partnerships are likely to be a staple of President Trump’s plans to overhaul America’s infrastructure. These arrangements allow private contractors fund public works, such as roads, and then charge people money to use them, usually through tolls. The deals often end badly for the public. In Texas, the company that built a toll road from Dallas to Austin went bankrupt in less than a decade, and before it could repay millions in federal loans. In Chicago, a 75-year Morgan Stanley-led lease on the city’s parking meters has cost the city millions.

Modelos creative agency, Ogilvy Mather Chicago, came up with the idea for the campaign, while media shop Horizon Media connected Modelo and Ogilvy with Great Big Story. To create the series, members of the Courageous team spent a month in Garden City, getting to know its residents, digging for stories that fit with Modelos message. The summer was spent producing the series, which launched in September. Modelo has been fighting for better since 1925, growing from a little beer in Tacuba, Mexico City, to become the fastest-growing beer in America, says Ann Legan, vp, brand marketing for Modelo. As a result, we proudly believe it doesnt matter where you come from; it matters what youre made of. Nowhere is that more true than in Garden City, a diverse place of people fighting for better, too. We wanted to celebrate the shared values between the brand and the people of Garden City and show how with a fighting spirit and the desire to persevere through adversity, great things can happen.
