Why is California so expensive? This article scratches the surface but ignores the real reasons
Overall, I like this opinion; don't neccesarily agree with every point a 100% except for the developer, landlord, NIMBY and prison challenge. On those issues, this article states the truth.
The one reason I disagree about is why Californians are not moving to other states.
They are; the number would be larger if one was not stuck here because one cannot afford to live here and move. The tech barons, the Hollywood stars, the career politicians and the NIMBY elite can afford to live here and are responsible for the ridiculous cost of housing.
The choice is not development or no growth. The choice is standing up to large scale winemakers, mega pot growers, the elite sucking up too much water, energy and telling the radical environmentalists and bureaucrats like the Coastal Commissioners and all the nth regulatory agencies to get a real job.
