Homelessness and Affordable Housing

Affordable housing for everyone isn't that hard.

Everybody wants everyone to have a safe, comfortable place to live. The problem, of course, is that it is hard to agree on how to make that happen. No one likes people to be homeless, but there seems to be strong disagreement about what to do about it. I have some thoughts.

So, I think the way to bring about affordable housing for everyone is to increase the supply of housing at all price points and not pass laws creating a gap between tent cities and a one-bedroom, one-bath, full-kitchen apartment. That’s a simple solution. Sadly, city politics often prevents it from being easy to implement.
