Watches, Agreed, but most of the resources (coal, oil, gas, minerals, food stuffs and the like) that are critical to the maintenance of life and the Nations daily operation and security are located in wild and wooly locations. Are these to be left open to perverted actions by international/domestic terrorists bent on the destruction of the Nation and its people?

Nelson

Should the federal government be making such grants to cities?I would argue no. The city knows how best to protect itself. The economic benefit of the city must be enough to offset the cost of protecting itself from attack. What we could do though is reduce federal taxes for everyone so that local governments could raise their taxes to build what they need (whether it be new roads and schools or increased anti-terrorism measures).

N.E.Hatfield

The City knows best? Then why did NYC &DC get hit in the first place. Or better yet New Orleans? ;)

GRG

I don't think in the case of international terrorism one can assume cities know best. Do police chiefs or mayors have access to CIA/FBI/Pentagon reports and intelligence? No. Do cities have access to the latest counter-terrorist software, hardware, communications, and other equipment? No.

There are certain issues where local control and local regulation should be implemented. Terrorism -- like diplomacy, the national currency, and national defense -- has to coordinated at a federal level.

Nelson

It's in the city's best interest to spend their own funds wisely, lets put it that way. Mayors and police chiefs *should* have access to Federal databases. Local governments can always ask for federal advice, but the idea is they're a lot closer to the problem and if they do spend money unwisely, at least it would be their money and not someone else's. Federal funds should be for shared or national resources such as shared computer data bases, naval patrols, CIA, FBI, etc... Local funds should be used for local projects, like building fences and beefing up local law enforcement.

In the Financial Times of Saturday 17 June there's a long and nice "lunch with the FT" interview with Gary Becker (p. W3).

Hi everyone. Good breeding consists of concealing how much we think of ourselves and how little we think of the other person.

Waiting for a reply :D, Ramsey.
