Captain Obvious!

I wonder what the numbers would look like if we collected them for a period preceding the past three decades. One can hardly read the "great works" of 18th or 19th century (or even 20th century) literature without noting that the rich and the poor did not exactly live and mingle in the same circles. And the last time I checked, the mansions of the rich and powerful in places like Newport, Rhode Island are not surrounded by slums, either.

Part of it is that instead of lots being sold individually, and families paying for the construction of our own homes, now we buy homes in developments from developers. Much easier, but the houses have a specific range. Furthermore, no developer is going to put cheap housing on expensive land, so the cheap housing will go in the lower-quality infill lots.

re: #3 Mostly sane, most of the time.

Doubtless there is much to that. However, even if in the past people bought lots on which to pay to build their own homes, lots in weatlhy areas were generally larger and priced for the wealthy, who then built homes for the wealthy on them. So, I am not sure much has really changed other than that the easy way to get published today is to harp on the 99% vs. 1% issue as though there has never been a huge gap between not only how, but also where, the wealthy and the not-so-wealthy lived.

Uhh...perhaps that should be "The Return of Residential Segregation by Income," although to be honest I never noticed it ever being missing in the first place.

When have there not been rich neighborhoods and poor neighborhoods? I would think that you would have to go back to before written history to find an answer to that one.

Section eight housing was supposed to end the giant low income only developments, but it has been implemented poorly with too many exceptions and allowances given. The subsidized low income units that were supposed to be spread a few per building in an entire development were instead allowed to be grouped all together into just a building or two (three). Nevermind that this defeats the entire purpose for the funding, nevermind that you now still have a "ghetto" area in an otherwise healthy development because of this. The fact that the developer got his tax subsidies, low interest loan, and loan guarantees from the Feds is what matters to supply side Jesus!
