As one lucky fella (I bought an apartment house in 1965 which lead to my own home in 1971, you can where that fits on Fischer’s curves) let me suggest one more area to study: the rise of the neighborhood/nimby movement in San Francisco which lead to the zoning changes starting in 1955, to require parking with every new unit and then even more democratically imposed limits on density. This will lead to the necessary partial solution, not a two thirds price reduction, a democratically imposed, by a vote of the majority of people in San Francisco, all those who need a more affordable place to live. I have a Medium article which suggestion zoning as a cause of the problem and another articles which outlines a ballot measure which will be a partial solution.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
