New York Series: The Pizza PrincipleJan 19th, 2012 - by Anjali
Pizza rates and transport rates walk hand in hand in New York City. How can this be? Back in the 60s when the inflation along with other reasons caused the price of the slice of pizza and a subway ride to raise at exactly the same rate. In the 1980s the same thing occurred astounding everyone that couldn’t find any empirical evidence to justify this strange coincidence! In spite of the decades having past this curious link between pizza slices and subway tickets is still talked about today in the papers in New York classifying it as the Pizza Principle. But where can we find delicious slices of pizza in New York?
