The Year That Housing Died

The Year That Housing Died

The author examines the "death" of affordable housing in the United States and explains that the Government has let the number of new subsidized housing units drop to zero. In many instances working people can not afford rent, and Government subsidies are offered to the middle and upper class. The author contends that the Government has not done enough to give most poor families to live in safe, decent and affordable housing. (HRC)
