National Housing Day solicits hope for affordable housing within the next decade — 3 Comments

  1. Based on the museum like information plaques in front of the two doorways, this looks more like some kind of interactive educational display than an actual shantytown in India.

  2. The government should get out of the housing business and let the private sector solve the problem.

    Take all of the money spent on public housing and return it to real estate entrepreneurs. Make the first $50,000 in rental income tax free. Allow rental properties to be depreciated at 20% annually, instead of the current 4%.

    If the government dared to take these steps, you would see such a boom in new rental property construction, the homeless problem would be solved in 5 years.

    But it will never happen. The present system will endure because, as Glenn Reynolds opined, there are more opportunities for graft.
