@feld You're addressing to different, though real and relevant problems.
One is under-pricing of fossil carbon fuels. Another is general inequality and inequity, as well as the age-old conflict between _rents_ incomes vs. _wages_ incomes. The rentiers generally win, the wage-earners generally lose.
There are additional taxes you want to impose on the 1%, but you _still_ have to make fossil fuels pay full freight.
@feld That is: they're paid through advertising, nagging, and by hiving off poor users who cannot afford new systems that will work with all the crap they throw out on the wire.
Note that "incentivised by the market" need not be "good for the planet" (or society, or anything else). But it's what the reward systems of the crappy-but-bloody-persistent economic ssytem we've got *generates*.
Which is why it can be useful to actually pay attention to what economics really is and does.
