Gentrification Is More Widespread Than You Think

Josh Ishimatsu, National CAPACD   
People like to say that gentrification is limited to a few hot markets. Here's why that may be wrong . . .  More

Doubling Down on Community Resilience

Denise Fairchild, Emerald Cities Collaborative  
Last month, I argued that place-based community development can make low-income neighborhoods more resilient to climate crises. A commenter countered that my article undermined "mobility" strategies, which move poor families out of struggling low-income neighborhoods. This is not a contest: Both community development and mobility strategies have merit. But . . .  More

The New Rent Control Wars

Randy Shaw, Tenderloin Housing Clinic   
The November 4 Alameda City Council meeting broke out in violence, with a city official assaulting a tenant activist and the police arresting two tenants for the "crime" of advocating for rent control. Welcome to the latest unlikely battleground in the new rent control wars . . .  More

You Said It!


"An Uber driver may not be raking in the cash they were led to believe, but if they are making money off of a depreciating asset that others are not, we can't consider it a total loss . . . If being a ride-hailing driver is the doom-and-gloom story you're portraying here, then why are so many drivers celebrating when a municipality welcomes them into their city?" --Chris L, more 

"I love that Uber just opens shop wherever they want to. Our legacy cities are so crushingly bureaucratic and corrupt, we need ways to allow technology to get people the services and jobs that are part of the new economy. Sure we should pressure new technology jobs to take care of their workers, but it is foolish to try to shut down a whole new technology until they are perfect." --Marcia Nedland, more

Author Reply

"I fully believe that services that operate like Uber and Lyft are the future of taxi services . . .
My point was they can, and should, be made to do business in a non-exploitative fashion that respects their workers. And I don't actually believe there's anything to stop a socially responsible alternative (note that in Seattle there would have been an alternative if it hadn't been shut down), especially if we didn't give the bad actors unfair advantages . . . Please do follow the links to the Driving for Dignity site to see the stories of some of the drivers." --Miriam Axel-Lute, more

The Answer




Q:
Do inclusionary housing requirements make housing prices go up for everyone else?


A: No, they do not.

Market-rate developers are business people. They charge as much as the market will bear. When housing prices go up, they charge more; when housing prices go down, they ask less. Developers are "price-takers" not "price-setters" because they only control a tiny share of the housing market. A large majority of rental and for-sale housing is located in existing buildings, not in brand-new buildings, limiting the influence of new housing, and inclusionary requirements, on home prices.
