Two economists at Michigan had this question: in what cities do home prices exceed the costs of the land and its construction costs? 

For some cities, like New York surprisingly, the land costs and construction cost move in line. But for cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles, accounting for land and construction did not explain why these homes were so expensive.

What do they think is the third cost to building a home? Regulation.

(HT to Storyline for the interesting article.) 

Guys I know that I have 3 people who follow me, but I highly suggest you nerds start listening to the Planet Money Podcast.

We Are Above the Law Declares County Attorney

August 19, 2014 | Paul Craig Roberts

Habersham County, GA: This is the jurisdiction that allowed intentionally, or through negligence, a SWAT team to break into a home with violent force in the middle of the night and throw a stun grenade into a baby’s face, sending him to a hospital for weeks where he was in life support, has ruled that it would be illegal for the county to pay the baby’s medical bills. 

See For Video Report: http://www.wsbtv.com/videos/news/county-will-not-pay-medical-bills-for-toddler-hurt/vCncdf/

The negligence of the police, and thereby the county, is a triple dose. 

It was the wrong house. 

A SWAT team was unnecessary in order to exercise a search warrant for a drug suspect. 

There was no excuse for throwing a stun grenade into a baby’s crib.

But the county attorney has ruled that the county is not liable for these massive incidences of unbridled negligence.

However, the unjustifiable SWAT team assault on the family in the home was legal.

As the saying goes, “a fish rots from the head.” 

The rot in government accountability that began in Washington has now reached the local level.

Update: Twitter is censoring. Spread the word, it seems like they're taking down pictures people are posting on twitter, a picture of police taking apart a camera after tear gassing the owners and making them run was just redacted from the website, everyone is confused.

This just happened in Seattle. A group of nonviolent protestors in support of Palestine were being harassed by a WHITE MAN, when this mall cop comes out and maces and detains a black man WITH NO AFFILIATION TOWARDS EITHER GROUP. AN INNOCENT BLACK MAN JUST WALKING INTO THE WESTLAKE MALL. The protestors are actively telling the mall cop that he MACED THE WRONG GUY, that the black man did nothing wrong, and he still handcuffs him and DENIES him water to flush out his eyes being offered by the protestors. I’m so disgusted. I have been to this area and mall many times in my life and I no longer feel safe going. I hope to god he presses charges and that this scum sucking shitstain loses his job. I’m so scared right now. I’m so fucking scared. Source here, but let the video speak for itself.

Cops. All of them.
