I am sure that free parking isn't really free, but neither does it cause restaurant meals, etc. to be higher. That's crazy, although typical of the pseudo-economics promoted in "Economist" and other popular "economics" outlets. If adding some feature at some cost simply jacks up the price, then a competitor can undercut by not offering the feature and gain market share. "Free" features aren't offered unless consumers value them more than the cost of providing them, and no, a business can't simply add costs to the price of something and be guaranteed people will pay it.

"Property is theft" applied to parking is amusing. In places where there's no crowding, why *shouldn't* parking on public streets or lots be free?
