Reinventing the Jet Airliner | Cato Institute

*** begin quote ***

Suppose I told you that I have reinvented the jet airliners that carried Americans more than 750 billion passenger miles–about 10 percent of all passenger travel–in 2019. My reinvented jet will go less than half as fast as existing jets. It will cost six times as much to operate, per passenger mile, as existing jets. Unlike existing jets, which can go anywhere there is air, the reinvented jet will only be able to go on a limited number of fixed routes.

Applying sarcasm to their “pet rock” project is a great way to “derail” it?

If the politicians and bureaucrats want it so bad and think it’s such a great idea, let them invest their retirement money in it.

Not very likely.
