ew... what's a renable?


Tax breaks are one of only a few tools that a government has to influence the economy and society, and they should be used wisely. The strength of historic preservation movements in this country seem to directly correspond to the availability of tax credits for historic preservation. On the other hand, subsidizing oil companies does not seem to me to be a good idea, for a contrary example. If we as a society believe that it is in the common interest to promote a 'green' economy, and I believe we do, then I'm all for the tax breaks, as long as they are done fairly and equitably.
