- Cap the number of office parking spaces in greater downtown Seattle (i.e. including Pioneer Square, the International District, First Hill, Capitol Hill, SLU, and lower Queen Anne).
- Set the cap below the current number of parking spaces, because there are already more cars during rush hour than the streets can remotely handle.
- This means that some parking spaces have to close. Hold an auction over rights to keep parking spaces open. Where will prices end up? Who knows! Similar to cap-and-trade markets for carbon emissions, the cap is based roughly on science (here, how many cars can enter and leave downtown during rush hour without insane congestion), and prices are lovingly guided by the wise hand of Adam Smith.
- Enact a permanent ban on the phrase “center-city”. Seriously, who says that? Nobody in Seattle, that's who.
- Get lunch.
