Matthew Yglesias here argues for pricing public parking to match demand. There is certainly something to be said for this but Yglesias weakens his case with this:
... When you price street parking properly—which is to say a price that’s high enough so that there’s almost always a space or two free on every block, but low enough so that there’s not more than a space or two free on any given block ...
This sounds good but is just not practical, there is no way the pricing would be that attuned to demand.
