Kotkin Housing/Homelessness Q4
Respect is missing. The problem won’t be solved by moralizing, and neither the YIMBYs or the NIMBYs have the answer. We need to be practical and not expect people to see their quality of life dwindle because they lack the political power to stop homeless shelters in their neighborhoods. But we also must think about how to use the enormous energy and capabilities of religious and other non-profits to tackle this issue.
