Paying for Transit

I posted an article below from Chris Caldwell about competition for scarce land due to gentrification driving class politics. This a article in the Economist about taxing the property gains from government investment to fund transit improvements. In a sense, this is a flip side to conservative complaints about government "takings" of property; where government increases the value of property due to its regulations and spending, it should collect the capital gains for social benefit.
