    Wandering Eye: Why Hillary Clinton could benefit from Martin O'Malley, 'Trickle-Down Gentrification,' and more
    Jacobin Magazine's "Trickle-Down Gentrification" makes the larger point that for some reason needs constant repetition: that building lots and lots of luxury condos does not actually make life better—or housing cheaper—for most of us. But right up near the beginning there is a small point, a passing, throwaway comment, really, that should be pondered and repeated far more than it is. "Affordable housing, often built by community development corporations like the one I work at, has largely supplanted government-funded public housing since the 1970s," Karen Narefsky, a community organizer based in Somerville, Massachusetts, writes. "Many units are paid for by Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), while some are covered by project-based Section 8 vouchers and other subsidies. But while public housing is home to people with incomes below 30 percent of the median, LIHTC units typically use 30 percent of median income as a floor. This means that while affordable housing is affordable to certain low- and moderate-income people, and plays an important role in allowing those people to remain in gentrifying cities, it is often unaffordable to the working poor." Catch that? "Affordable," in subsidized-housing speak, no longer means "affordable to the poor." Rich people get huge tax breaks for funding housing that used to be called "market rate." But, nowadays, "market rate" means "luxury; unaffordable to all but the 1 percent." Things that ought to make you go hmmmm. (Edward Ericson Jr.)
