The Zoning Theory of Everything

 The Zoning Theory of Everything

Zoning rules—which effectively socialize private property by mandating what owners can or can’t do with their own land—are at the crux of the housing crisis. Zoning laws driven by NIMBYs limit new housing construction, and scarcity drives up prices. This complex article touches on macroeconomic issues, policies, social shifts and more, and points a finger at zoning as a cause of the Great Recession. It also shames people and politicians across the spectrum for not understanding the root causes of the housing crisis and for preventing solutions.
