You didn't finish your quote....

To wit:

"My personal favorite is to fund education with taxes on stupid behavior: drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, pollution, gambling, logging... etc. Thus its a negative feedback effect: the smarter the kids become, the less need there is for more education... This to me is the optimum way to have 'price' signalling in education." Mike Lorrey
