After years of debate, Raleigh has finalized rules overseeing short-term rentals, including those tied to AirBNB. Jon Guze, John Locke Foundation director of legal studies, says those rules strike a blow against private property rights. Guze also notes that the rules have prompted a fight between Raleigh’s NIMBY (“not in my backyard”) and YIMBY (“yes in my backyard”) contingents. Mitch Kokai and JLF President and CEO Kory Swanson chat with Guze about his reaction to Raleigh’s new rules.
