Mostly, scanning the local papers for this blog, I see history repeat its errors, over and over and over. Newbies recycle failed plans and call it exciting. Rinse, repeat. Rarely, do I see something that makes me want to stand up, cheer, and shout, “Amen!” Today, we have one such piece in the Mountain Xpress. It is a letter from a reader responding to all the advice from experts on Asheville’s affordable housing crisis, recently printed. A couple other LTE’s have similarly argued government-imposed market distortions are creating, perpetuating, and exacerbating the problem. Today’s, by Bernard Baruch Carman, is worth sharing with friends in high places. Click and click again.
