Re: “Alameda Extends Rent Hike Moratorium, But Doesn’t Adopt Rent Control Measures

The proposed system sends large rent increases to an advisory board and then to binding arbitration to decide what is "fair". But what is the criterion for "fair? Is it what the tenant can afford? Or is fair what the landlord can get on the free market? Without hard benchmarks the decisions are necessarily arbitrary.

And while they experiment and tunker, families continue to be impoverished and lose their homes.
