Nate brings the case against his wife, Pam. They have just bought their first house and Pam wants to have a swimming pool installed. Nate says pools are too expensive and time consuming to maintain.

EVIDENCE

Submitted by Nate:

Dangerousness of pools:
Steven Levitt (Freakonomics guy): "Thus, on average, if you both own a gun and have a swimming pool in the backyard, the swimming pool is about 100 times more likely to kill a child than the gun is."
scienceblogs.com/deltoid/2001/07/27/levittpoolsvsguns

Financial impact:
"According to Houselogic.com, the National Association of Realtors' online magazine for homeowners, the average cost to install, equip, and fill a 600-square-foot concrete pool starts at $30,000."
"You’ll spend about $600 during the swimming season on chemicals if you maintain your pool yourself. If you live in a climate where you’ll use the pool year-round, budget $15–25 a week for DIY maintenance."
