Market-Rate Housing Isn’t a Bad Word, and We Won’t Solve the Housing Crisis Without It
Scott Wiener

Nice post Scott. In Madison, Wisconsin I have many friends who own homes and want two things to happen. They want the value of their home to increase at a fast rate — making their home investment highly profitable. And they want more affordable housing for all the people who struggle with that financial burden. When I suggest these two desires are somewhat at odds, they’re not all that open to listening. :) Ah well, I feel the tide is turning a bit and that the left is starting to understand that it is indeed a scarcity problem more than anything else. (Although yes, automation and global markets are making it difficult for the bottom 25% to afford even basic housing.)
