Good overview and history of rent control. Solid history and analysis of rent control in Berkeley, DC, LA, New Jersey, NYC, Toronto, and mobile home parks including how we got it, how we lose it and ways landlord weaken it. (Only complaint might be some of their word choice when trying to be or sound unbiased mimics anti-rent control advocates) I recommend it to anyone working on rent control issues.

But a useful counterweight to the many screeds by economists universally condemning it. One matter missing is the correlation between zoning restrictions on housing supply and the need for rent control to counteract lack of supply.
