(Bonus) Quote of the Day

“…we must never forget that any time we say ‘no’ to new building,
whether in the city centre or on the edge, we are saying ‘no’ to families
that want to experience the magic of urban life. We also ensure that
every other family that lives in the city is paying more for their own homes.”
~ Harvard University economist Edward Glaeser, quoted in the 2016 Demographia Report [pdf], out yesterday

  1. Housing is important for obvious reasons. When politicians restrict the growth of housing development, you have to wonder what their agenda is, when there wouldn't be a politician anywhere that doesn't have a nice abode.
