That's a laugh in how SV broke itself. NIMBYism doesn't exist in some vacuum.

And we see it in how they are 'breaking' Nevada and Arizona. Reminds me of Bill Peet's children book "The Wump World"...with California leftists being the Pollutians wrecking one world after another and won't change but just go and find another world.

I see Google campus, Spaceship and Saleforce DIldx towers popping up. Sammy wants their own 1M sq ft college too. If you have "CHOICE" in employers, that is a great thing. You go to Oregon, that's it, unless you can code for NIKE or change career and design shoes.

It's broken, but these are rich peoples problems and employers problems. And if its a rich people problem its not a problem. And we know for sure BA could care less a few out of too many start ups fails and leaves. 99 out of 100 cities want to have the highest housing price or bay area problems.

$2500 a month would buy a luxurious RV.


.... and all the headaches which come with it. And it won't be in any way better (or bigger) than a studio. And it will lose 1/2 of it's value every 5 years (well-known rule of thumb for RVs).

As the cost of living continues to skyrocket, San Francisco Bay Area residents are fleeing the region in droves. In fact, San Francisco lost more residents than any other US city in the last quarter of 2017.


You post important topics but IMO often draw the wrong conclusions. SV is a leftist paradise and that is the only reason it has come to this, ordinary people - which are also regular developers - are taxed to the hilt, raped by federal, state taxes followed by municipal fees and quasi taxes tacked on everything while the ultra-rich and those who have a family monopoly on houses (old-timers) are being protected by any means, as well as fattest salaries for municipal and state gov workers, pensions north of 200K/yr (even 400K was reported) are common, devouring all taxpayer money while letting the city rot to shit. They are literally strangling any upward mobility besides either hitting the jackpot at one of the early startups (veery poor odds) or working 2-3 jobs minimum. Nobody works harder against equal opportunity to prosperity than the left, esp. in SV/SF. You don't have to like Trump, but you should at least be a Libertarian if you want shit like that to change.

Senior developers make more than IT managers???




The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should.

Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
