Build Them And They Will Come!

PLUS: Housing solutions that are not solutions

So I am a little frustrated today. I spend quite a bit of time reading up on the “solutions” for the housing problem – from all sides of the political spectrum. What I never hear is anyone identifying what the actual problem is and then suggesting things that will actually solve the problem in an real way. While pundits talk about making it easier to buy, or supplementing renters they completely miss the point that creating more buyers will simply make things worse that that renters can end up paying less by increasing the number of homes on the market.

In todays show, lets talk about some real solutions – from several different political points of view. I have never made it a secret that I believe that government is the problem, not the solution. However, in todays show we will put that aside and discuss even those solutions that would mean more government involvement. After all, when you are trying to solve a problem, why not start with the ideas to start instead of worrying about where they fall politically. I will make it clear what ideas I think would work best, but I will do my best to honestly present some more government centric solutions that nobody is talking about that might just give us the increase in inventory we need to get this market moving in a more healthy direction.
