For the past century, housing in California has been in the control of local governments. Mayors and city councils, not the state, have the power to decide where homes can be built, and how many. But while California's economy and population have boomed, the number of houses and apartments has not kept pace. KPBS metro reporter Andrew Bowen says the state's housing crisis is prompting a radical change of thinking.

The median price of a place to live has now hit 500 thousand US dollars and it's forcing some people, who still earn good salaries, onto the streets as rents rise.

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about the alarming nature of San Francisco's housing bubble as it gets close and closer to bursting. Some tell tale signs of the inevitable bubble burst is the fact that non-tech middle class workers are being forced to move into dorms with shared bathrooms. When the middle class can't afford housing, there's a problem. Starcity, a development company that buys up defunct hotels is catering to people who make less than 90,000 dollars a year by offering "affordable housing" for middle class workers where members pay between $1400 to $2400 a month for a fully furnished bedroom and a shared bathroom. So, we all know that California's an incredibly centralized state with regulations pushing small business far out of competition and social programs perpetuating problems left and right. It certainly doesn't help that we're seeing the return of collateralized debt obligations, credit default swaps and mortgage backed securities as derivatives heat up, manipulate markets and create further future problems. The demand is simply not there, but that doesn't stop banks or developers. Investor confidence is the only thing holding most of the system up and as soon as investors start to question their faith in the system, it all comes crashing down. The fundamentals aren't there. But of course the fundamentals are off the table due to the level of manipulation in the markets and the monetary system, so we can't put a date on the crash, but we know very well that it will most definitely happen. It's inevitable. So as people blindly euphoric with greed and false optimism continue to fall for the same old tricks, they will eventually get burned. We are seeing that in places like Vancouver, Toronto, Seattle, London, Sydney and Perth Australia, parts of Iceland, Oslo and many more parts of the world. The question is, are people going to be prepared? Or are we going to just repeat history once again? It's important that people are financially responsible and self sustainable. We can't say it enough because it's absolutely incredibly important. Responsibility is the hallmark of freedom itself after all. Let's decentralize and look to ourselves for the answers. Not the government and banks. We will simply fall further into debt servitude if we continue to have faith in an antiquated system that has failed thousands of times. Stay tuned for more from WAM!

When we set out to find the homes our budget would buy, we knew we would get little to nothing for $200,000. But doubling that price limit to $400K we just assumed we were firmly in the SoCal housing market. Our eyes didn’t want to tell our wallets what we found. It’s not that you can’t find a house for nearly a half million dollars in Southern California; you can. But is it in a place where the commute to work is realistic?

In this interview, Carson Bruno explains how NIMBYs are making California’s affordable housing crisis even worse by blocking much needed, high-density urban development projects. Carson Bruno is an Assistant Dean at Pepperdine University's School of Public Policy. Twitter: @CarsonJFBruno https://twitter.com/CarsonJFBruno?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor Carson’s Real Clear Markets article on NIMBYism and Affordable Housing: http://www.realclearmarkets.com/articles/2016/03/24/nimby-ism_and_the_california_housing_shortage_102078.html The Millennial Project Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/The-Millennial-Project-1465969280366569/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/andrewmurphydavis/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/?lang=en Interview Summary Introduction: California’s affordable housing crisis is primarily driven by supply and demand. More people are moving to California every year and California is not building enough new housing supply to satisfy this increased demand. The result is a price increase. Rents are going up, home buyers are paying more for new houses, and homeowners are paying more in taxes (as property values increase) to hold on to property that they already have. This crisis is especially severe in California’s largest cities: San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego. The cure for this crisis is increasing supply by constructing more housing units. However, NIMBYs are blocking the construction of these new units across the state. Interview begins 1:30 Carson begins the interview by explaining that “NIMBYism by itself isn’t necessarily a problem” because it “isn’t anti-development per say”. However, what has happened in California is that NIMBYism has “merged with residentialism”, which came out of Palo Alto in the 1960s and is very anti-development and very anti-growth. Residentialists, Carson says, seek to block development because they want to preserve the “culture” and “intrinsic feel” of their communities “at the time that they bought into that community”. 2:11 Carson goes on to explain that this is one of the hardest political problems to understand because it doesn’t fall neatly on “partisan lines”. Instead, you can find everyone from Republicans and Democrats to Communists and Libertarians in the Residentialist-NIMBY movement. The locality of zoning decisions also further complicates the issue. 3:16 Next, Carson talks about “the NIMBY toolkit” and how NIMBYs influence local governments to do what they want. According to Carson, development is already a very long process and NIMBYs attempt to further “elongate” or “frustrate” the process until it “kills the process entirely”. 4:56 They do this with three primary tools. The first is “misinformation”. Here, NIMBYs build strawman arguments like the idea that Airbnb—rather than a NIMBY fueled restriction on development—is driving up housing prices. NIMBYs also perpetrate misinformation by exaggerate problems associated with development, like traffic congestion, in order to make those problems seem unsolvable and keep projects from getting approved. 5:50 The second tool is “co-opting the political process”. NIMBYs get their own members elected to local political office or appointed to local planning and advisory boards. They also “flood” city council meetings, committees, and hearings “with their members, making it seem like they are the only voices that really have a stake” in the project. And this strategy can be very effective because, in politics, “the squeaky wheel gets the oil”. 6:49 The third is CEQA—the California Environmental Quality Act. CEQA allows anybody to file appeals against a project on the grounds that it may be harming the environment. NIMBYs utilize this law to gum up the permitting process for projects, by demanding more environmental impact reports and reviews. The goal here, Carson says, is to “stall, stall, stall in the hope of eventually killing” projects. 8:35

Wall Street was aware of the risks involved with sub-prime lending but chose to ignore them. No ethics, just money- here is a story of greed and recklessness In California, the sub prime crisis has hit homeowners full on. Repossessions have become routine and the foreclosure rate is still accelerating. Neat façades and tidy gardens can't prevent houses being sold for almost half of what they cost a year ago. Pressed for time and money, owners are torn out of their homes: "It's like leaving your children" says Rob. He is hoping the bank will accept a quick sale and forgive the loss, but this is unlikely. Most are made to wait until they default on repayment, which wrecks their credit record. Former bankers reveal how low interest rates were meant to boost the economy. Banks looked for ways to make profit despite low rates and chased high-risk mortgages that would pay 8 or 9%, ignoring the consequences for borrowers if prices fell and interest rates rose again: "There's no perception of the guy in some tiny little house in Detroit or in Philadelphia or in Stockton who basically might be losing their home." Now that the system has failed, banks are less ready to lend money and this impacts on the entire economy. Families lose their homes, businesses fail; Wall Street gambled and the world has to pay.

When nearly half of California households struggle to buy or rent a home in their community, the scope of the state's housing problem is already well documented. In the video above, we feature attendees at the California Economic Summit in December talking about how a housing fix for California can "go big" to match the scale of the crisis and meet the state's ambitions. The L.A. Times today laid out how the state, in order to meet its climate change goals, will need to dramatically remake cities through denser development that is close to job centers and encourages Californians to drive less. To address poverty and meet its climate change goals and prevent lost economic activity -- estimated to be $140 billion each year -- the Summit's 2017 Roadmap to Shared Prosperity makes the case for an “all of the above” solution that increases affordability by offering incentives to communities that expand their supply of housing near jobs and transit. 2017 ROADMAP TO SHARED PROSPERITY: http://caeconomy.org/resources/entry/2017-roadmap-to-shared-prosperity Last week, we were introduced to a family that was "scraping by" on $160,000 a year living in San Francisco. “Families are priced out of the market,” said tech worker parent featured in the Guardian story, also who said the family was living in rented house for $3,000 a month, "ultra-cheap" for the area. Whether you chuckle at the "scraping by" comment or shake your head at the stories of people paying thousands to live in dorm-like conditions, there's not much doubt that California's housing market is no match for the need. From across the San Francisco Bay in Alameda County, Kristin Connelly, president and CEO of the East Bay Leadership Council, shared with us at the Summit -- and in the above video -- how cities that were once considered affordable are seeing a jumps in the poverty rate, driven largely by housing costs. Also last week, data on affordable housing was released and showed California only has around 21 affordable rental units available for every 100 "families earning at or below either the poverty line or 30 percent of the area median income can live in comfortably—without spending more than 30 percent of their household income on rent and utilities." One of the elements of the 2017 Roadmap housing action plan is identifying funding to encourage more housing production, including creating a new permanent source of revenue for affordable housing. An example moved forward last week when a bill to create a real estate fee that would direct revenue for more affordable housing cleared its first hurdle in the Legislature. But, others at the Summit pointed out how there's much more that can be done, in addition to securing dollars to build affordable housing, such as creating innovative policies that incentivize cities and regions to produce more housing, especially for low-income and middle-income Californians. The 2017 Summit Roadmap, created through housing expert convenings in 2016, provides a legislative framework that does just that by: 1. Connecting fiscal incentives to state and local actions that increase affordability: The Summit has identified a set of incentives that could be offered to jurisdictions that approve new housing close to jobs and transit, to state and local programs that increase housing supplies, and to jurisdictions that change local regulations to reduce housing costs and accelerate development. 2. Increasing accountability for adequate housing: The Summit will support efforts to strengthen existing housing laws, while increasing enforcement for jurisdictions that are not approving adequate affordable and market-rate housing.

Business groups talk about the threat of rising housing costs to state's competitiveness While California's housing crisis is increasingly putting the squeeze on more Californians across the income spectrum, more are calling it a threat to the state's economic competitiveness and vitality. In the video above, leaders from business groups representing employers in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley talk about the impact of rising housing costs. With 1 in 4 Californians struggling economically, rental rates keep rising and incomes overall are falling. This is putting a strain on California's workforce, especially on low-income residents, but also those in the middle-income range. That pushes workers farther away, who must drive long distances from their homes to get to their jobs in pricey places like Santa Barbara, adding to traffic for everybody on the road. Some employers in the expensive Bay Area regions are so concerned about housing they're looking into workforce housing solutions for a whole range of income brackets. A San Mateo County school district is exploring the development of workforce housing for teachers and staff pressured by the cost of living. And an agricultural company in Monterey County built their own workforce housing after experiencing for the first time not having enough seasonal workers available due to housing costs. The problem is familiar for employers and workers in Southern California as well, as the cost of a median home in a six-county region has gone over $500,000. This week, the planning group covering those six counties, the Southern California Association of Governments gathered hundreds of local officials, planning experts, and homebuilders to talk about how to increase the housing supply through fiscal incentives, identifying funding resources, and local planning policies. The conference also dove into the cost to "not housing" and the effects of the state's undersupply on affordability, health, and traffic. The California Economic Summit made housing a signature issue, elevating the problem to be part of the One Million Challenges, an ambitious set of goals to boost upward mobility and shared prosperity for all Californians. At the 2016 California Economic Summit, participants will gather to hone strategies that take an all-of-the-above approach, inviting ideas to advance the Summit's goal of building one million homes over the next decade. http://www.caeconomy.org/summit You're invited to join them and share your ideas for tackling the housing crisis and more.

Sonja Trauss talks about the the YIMBY movement in the Bay Area, how it evolved, the diversity of groups and the relationship to the historical fight to desegregate neighborhoods. In particular, we cover our (relatively) new turn to the courts to enforce existing CA state housing laws and the California version of the Federal Fair Housing Act. Mark Vallianatos, Leading LA Housing Advocate, interprets the implications of Trauss’s Bay Area’s experience for addressing the housing crisis in Los Angeles. Rather than fight off new development, how can Los Angeles become a place that welcomes enough homes for all our residents? He speaks about the goals of a new organization he cofounded known as Abundant Housing L.A. Sonja Trauss, founded the SFBay Area Renters Federation, the Metro Observer and co-founded the YIMBY Party and CA Renters Legal Advocacy to advance the cause of building housing. San Francisco, and California generally, are experiencing a housing shortage. Housing shortage is bad for renters (and good for homeowners, incidentally). Over the last few decades, most solutions have focused on fixing the price of housing, while allowing the shortage to worsen. Since high prices are a symptom of the underlying shortage, focusing only on prices hasn’t gotten us any closer to fixing the problem.
