The REAL reason

homelessness is so prevalent in California. Actually, I think there are several reasons that act in concert to make it worse, but I think that this one alone is causally sufficient to explain what we are seeing.

… the article argues persuasively, California and other left-leaning states tend to have the nation’s most egregious levels of homelessness because they have made it extraordinarily difficult to build enough housing to meet demands.

… “Liberals have stated preferences that housing should be affordable, particularly for marginalized groups … But local politicians seeking to protect the interests of incumbent homeowners spawned a web of regulations, laws, and norms that has made blocking the development of new housing pitifully simple.”
