Housing Crises

The solution to unaffordable rent (like in SFO / LA / NYC) is NOT: — Govt controlling rent prices for landlords, or — Govt subsidising rent for renters/housing vouchers.

Unaffordable rent is created by the govt in the first place because of unsustainable zoning laws. This restricts people to build fewer homes which cannot keep up with the current and future demand and this is why we see a sharp increase in the rent costs.

We do not solve unaffordable rent by having more regulation BUT to deregulate, repeal those zoning laws, and let the free market take over, which will enable a lot more private citizens to build more homes.
