In a new column, Sam Staley says part of the blame for increased housing prices goes to outdated and unnecessary zoning laws: "...only about 6 percent of the nation is developed. Two-thirds of New Jersey, the nation's most developed state, is open space. We have plenty of land to build homes - if politicians let them be built.". Full column here. Len Gilroy on the housing shortage here. Reason's growth research and commentary here.
