@denikombucha abolishing rent is a pretty bad idea, at least as far as I’ve thought
Think a lil' farther.
@denikombucha I do think it would be good as it’s a major reason people are homeless, but if we have no rent, who will build the buildings for people to stay in?
Who will pay people to fix stuff when it breaks?
What’s protecting against overpopulation?
Also, if we get rid of rent, the economy will literally shit its pants. Prices will fluctuate as people don’t have to pay rent, companies might charge more for X since consumers have more money, etc, etc. There are always repercussions with something like this.
@denikombucha I’m not saying we shouldn’t lower rent. It’s way too fucking expensive, but how else are you going to pay property taxes and shit for the buildings you own?
