    I've actually seen this in practice. Downtown Vancouver, BC is spotless. The buildings are white and blue with glittering windows, the sidewalks and parks are free of litter, and the docks and "beach" are kept free of drifting garbage, all by a small army of city employees. Why? The huge tourist income of this area. But if you take a public bus off the beaten path, you'll find buildings stained by polution, empty lots full of garbage and abandoned shopping carts, cigarette butts in the gutters, and everything else you'd expect of the largest city in Canada.
