arienc >> Based on A Smith's comment above, we would never, ever consider closing down city streets so kids could have a Santa Claus parade.

If the Santa Claus parade is a popular event, then I can easily imagine corporate sponsors lining up to underwrite it as a part of their advertising budget. If it only has a small following in the community, what would be the rationale for blocking city streets?

Which is a better idea, producing "x+ happiness" while using x in resources, or producing "x- happiness" using x in resources? Keep in mind that society only ever has a limited resource base to produce happiness, so does it make sense to waste resources on activities that produce "x- in happiness"? If so, why?
