What a waste why dont the government use the houses for section 8

Rust Belt Cities Raze Homes as Defaults Blight Neighborhoods

Cleveland’s population has been shrinking for 60 years as the city lost manufacturing jobs. Now, after more than 33,000 foreclosures since 2005, it’s demolishing hundreds of deserted, derelict homes. An agency started last year to manage abandoned houses in Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, plans to acquire as many as 1,000 properties next year, and tear down as many as 900 of them.

  • The British Gov has been knocking down houses under the Pathfinder scheme for years.Oop north so nobody’s taken much notice.
    The Georgist solution would be to raise LVT on prosperous areas down south and spend it creating jobs in areas in the Pathfinder flight path.So nobody’s going to touch that idea for starters.
