Housing policy and the social benefits of home ownership
In the second article, "Housing Policy and the Social Benefits of Homeownership," Ed Coulson states that the major subsidies to homeownership arise from the U.S. tax code, and the costs of these subsidies are high. Coulson asks whether the social benefits from homeownership are sufficient to warrant such subsidies. To answer the question, he reviews the research on the social benefits of ownership and some related issues. The evidence indicates that homeownership does carry substantial social benefits, but their dollar value remains uncertain.
