Red-Blue Divide Viewed Through Housing
Virginia Postrel has a great article over at the Atlantic where she posits that housing is as an important factor as religion in predicting Americans political views. Now I think here thesis is overdone but she does make some very interesting points. Especially noteworthy is looks at how Americans view the disappearance or non-disappearance of the middle class as a function of land use regulations and zoning laws.
