The Politics of Housing ft. Jerusalem Demsas, part 1

The US has a housing crisis, but how did we get here?  Vox's Jerusalem Demsas joins the show to discuss the politics of housing.  What does the public really think about building more housing? What motivates NIMBYs - economic self interest, fear of change, or something else? How much should we worry about accusations of gentrification when new housing gets built? We cover all this and more. To hear the entire conversation, head over to our Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/neoliberalproject. The full episode is more than twice as long and covers the California YIMBY victories, the best political strategies for the future, the "cost disease socialism" problem and even more.  Become a Patron today!   Discussed on the podcast - https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/585765/golden-gates-by-conor-dougherty/ https://www.yalelawjournal.org/article/stuck-the-law-and-economics-of-residential-stagnation Got questions for the Neoliberal Podcast?  Send them to mailbag@neoliberalproject.org Follow us at: https://twitter.com/ne0liberal https://www.instagram.com/neoliberalproject/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/1930401007051265/   Join a local chapter at https://neoliberalproject.org/join
