I agree with Lynne Kiesling - let's use market prices to ration access to scarce airport facilities and reduce congestion and inconvenience. And:
"*Make little planes and big planes participate in the same auction. One of the most egregious uses of the nice, long runways at O'Hare during peak periods is seeing streams of Cessnas in between 737s. If the CEO's private plane's journey is that valuable at that time, make the company pay for the time slot."
Lawrence Solum wants to apply a similar principle to the allocation of email storage space on the University of San Diego computer system.
