Rents

Let rents increase and more places be built. Its still not a crazy expensive place like San Francisco. The rents before were way too low to begin with. Affordable? It is still quite affordable. It couldn't remain cheap forever.

Nope.

Hey Dan Borden, when you came to Berlin, did the government “house” you, or did you do what the vast majority of people do, and show agency and initiative in finding suitable accommodation for yourself on the open market, as per the laws of supply and demand?

I don’t want the city government “putting” people in flats. That has terrifying echoes of the Soviet Union. I want it to create the conditions for enough flats to be built, and then to get out of the way.
