"Berkeley has put an end to a long-drawn-out bid to create housing in the city that began with an application to build three homes on a lot in southwest Berkeley, and went on to trigger lawsuits and appeals."

All this just to replace one home with three. Good luck solving the housing problem.
The way to solve the affordable housing problem is to make it easy for home builders to profitably build cheaper housing. That would include building lots and lots of high density projects comprising of condos, apartments, and high rises. There is no other way.

Sure it's affordable. Instead of $4,000 for a 2 bedroom, it will be $3,900.




The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
