re: Jim's comment about considering adults vs humans- "I'm not suggesting I _know_ what the _best way_ to allocate commons cost is. But I wonder why the number of _adults_ instead of the number of _human beings_ would be the appropriate measure of a family's responsibility for cost sharing. (Or even the number of _mammals_?) " >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I guess our rationale on using # adults rather than # humans is to encourage rather than discourage families w/ kids. As far as I remember. And I find Nancy's comments on costs very interesting. Now that we have some large units to cnsider, I suspect MOCOCO may revise its formula. It 's very very hard to decide what is FAIR.
