No Free Lunch

民協馮檢基批評,政府過去一年公屋越建越少,醫療事故頻繁,未有積極製造就業,更無回應小班教學訴求。 More here.

So what should we do about it? I bet Mr Fung is going to say that we need more resources to be devoted to building new public housing, to buying better medical equipment as well as employing more medical staff, and more jobs for building roads to nowhere, tennis courts where no one uses, railways where utilitzation rate stays low....

Does he understand that more of these things require that we have less of other things? Who is going to pay for these things? And why? How can he tell the things we get as a result of giving up other things are more valuable than those things that we have (or are forced) to give up?
