    Rick, is rental housing really the problem? If people are stuck in rental housing for lack of better work opportunities (and we know it’s going to get worse with computerization and mechanization of many jobs), then people will be stuck paying rent, but building up no equity… that is a sure ball and chain keeping people stuck in poverty. What are options beyond renting or buying? There must be something that will allow the build up of equity or else we’re all just spinning our wheels… are there other options, like leasing, or?
