Cato: Lost Your House To Foreclosure? Blame The Urban Planners

New, 27 comments

That whole housing collapse you've heard about? All because of subprime mortgages? Wrong! Or so claims the Cato Institute, which has found a new scapegoat: Urban Planners. Yes, that's right. Land-use planners have made housing unaffordable and thus have produced the credit crunch. Better not regulate, Cato warns, or we're putting the entire US economy "at risk of a Japanese-style crash."
