Housing and Homelessness

We David_Camposspend the hour on housing and homelessness. First, the economics: why housing doesn’t follow the same supply and demand dynamics as other products. Then, the crisis: the push in San Francisco to get a state of emergency declaration to deal with homelessness.

Guests:

  • David Campos, Supervisor representing San Francisco’s District 9, which includes the Mission District
