letters | MBTA MULLS SELLING NAMING RIGHTS FOR STATIONS
Must everything be reduced to a market commodity?
Paul L. Nevins writes: The T’s proposal would presumably allow naming rights to some stations in return for the highest bid. The crisis in the public square is caused to two interrelated issues. Ill-informed, apathetic citizens are unwilling to support the public services that they want and need with increased taxes, and corporate America would like to privatize every public institution, function, and entity from which it could eke out a profit.
