Re: “Why Is There a Housing Crisis?

The absolute refusal of the towns of Silicon Valley to add housing to keep up with the business expansion they permit continually should be added to this critique.

This is another aspect of privilege and inequality -- the homeowners of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties cannot bear to have any part of their towns devoted to denser housing. They want to maintain a small-town or suburban environment even as they encourage Silicon Valley companies to expand and bring in new employees from outside the Bay Area.

The entire Bay Area is screaming from housing inflation caused by this privileged selfishness. An indolent Mayor Lee in San Francisco has done nothing to bring the ABAG cities together to discuss smart growth; rather, he promotes the same kind of mindless business expansion in San Francisco, letting the housing chips fall where they may.
