: This whole system makes me queasy.
For a variety of reasons, this is not a topic appropriate to this board -- mostly because it results in a lot of noise by people who think they understand Keynesian economics (how many times can we recite 'willing buyer willing seller toy boat') after reading something from the Cato group. So please take this to Usenet where other noisemakers hang out.
A few points however. Rent Regs are not post-WWII. There were incarnations well before that. The system now is radically different from what it was then. And NYC is not, by far, the only city with rent regs. A good number do. And plenty of economists support rent regs -- the poster hasn't done his homework. (or her, but the poster was anonymous.) We'll leave it at that and not treat other misconceptions. End of thread.
