About the book: Anger is not just ubiquitous, it is also popular. Many people think it is impossible to care sufficiently for justice without anger at injustice. Many believe that it is impossible for individuals to vindicate their own self-respect or to move beyond an injury without anger. To not feel anger in those cases would be considered suspect.

Chile Harper Lecture by Lee Fennell: Rethinking Housing

Date: 
03.17.2016
Location: 
Santiago, Chile

Economists call a bridge a “lumpy good”—without the whole thing, one has nothing of value. Housing is a similarly lumpy commodity: a half-built house is not half as valuable as a complete dwelling. Law makes housing lumpy when it mandates minimum quality or sizes.
