Rent Control and the War Against the Poor
by R. W. Grant

Solid libertarian and economic arguments against rent control and against legislation that hurts the poor among others.
"When all is said and done, the only real solution to a shortage of rental housing is more rental housing. However, the greatest single obstacle to a market response to this problem is the looming presence of rent control!" p. 17
Political advocates on the left do not like free-market solutions because the market is
"so materialistic that it pays more attention to a consumer than to a consumer advocate" p. 33

Year Read: 1997
