From prominent political thinker and widely followed Slate columnist, a polemic on high rents and housing costs and how these costs are hollowing out communities, thwarting economic development, and rendering personal success and fulfillment increasingly difficult to achieve. Rent is an issue that affects nearly everyone. High rent is a problem for all of us, extending beyond personal financial strain. High rent drags on our country's overall rate of economic growth, damages the environment, and promotes long commutes, traffic jams, misery, and smog. Yet instead of a serious focus on the issue, America's cities feature niche conversations about the availability of affordable housing for poor people. Yglesias's book changes the conversation for the first time, presenting newfound context for the issue and real-time, practical solutions for the problem.
