The most comprehensive and authoritative treatment of the rent control issue to date, this volume addresses: the conditions that provoke interest in rent control, the outcome of implementing the policy, the instruments used for evaluating the program, and its impact of local govenrments and housing markets. The contributors describe in detail two prime examples of rent control--in New York and California--and assess rent control's value for America's political economy.
