Update on Prop 10 and The Repeal of Costa Hawkins

I covered Proposition 10 on November’s upcoming ballot in detail last month. Today’s NY Times article has a brief summary of what it’s about. In addition, there’s a link to another article that explains the pros and cons of rent control, including why most economists on both the left and the right “are almost universally against rent control.” No one, least of all me, is disputing that housing affordability both for renters and buyers is an issue in the Bay Area. I just don’t think that expanding rent control is the way to fix the problem.
