In his recent article “How to Fix the Housing Crisis” in Prospect Magazine, Andrew Adonis argues that the public sector must use its underdeveloped land to provide new housing which is badly needed. This is a topic which caught the attention of our latest author, Andrew Purves.
To read Purves’ full response in the comments section visit Prospect Magazine online. On our Ethical Economics blog we present a digest of his arguments and how they relate to the central premise of his new book. He concludes this by saying: “Adonis’ suggestions of using existing public land to build housing is a good one. However, could this not also be improved by ensuring private owners of land are suitably taxed to ensure that property is made available to those who need it? You can read more about this proposal in No Debt High Growth Low Tax.”
