Why Patrik Schumacher is wrong about housing

Comment

Schumacher gets abuse instead of reasoned argument because his opinions are childish. There's a minimum threshold of stupidity that needs to be met before people become bothered enough to engage in reasoned argument, and rebutting Schumacher's panegyric to a subject he doesn't understand requires such herculean efforts that it's not worth it. As an architect who studied economics before switching careers, Schumacher has the blind faith in capitalism that can only be sustained by a total ignorance of it, and his usage of terms like 'socialism' shows that he hasn't even bothered to read the wikipedia page on what socialism is. The man should be assigned a reading list for homework and then completely ignored.
