This book addresses market demand-based permitting and building planning in municipalities and counties. It reviews implications for property rights, protecting the local economy, and preventing development in excess of market needs. The book shows how market demand-based planning and permitting could have reduced the severity of the savings and loan crisis as well as the Great Recession while saving the economy millions of jobs and Americans trillions of dollars in real estate equity. It reviews many existing tools that can be used to implement market demand-based planning and permitting.
