Restriction Drives Land Values
In the political arena today, politicians are afraid to appear pro-growth and petrified of anything what would make them appear anti-environment. Unfortunately, the self-styled environmentalists apparently believe that all growth is negative.
In the late 1980’s, I had the privilege of traveling extensively in Texas during the Savings and Loan crisis. From that experience, I learned the problems of growth are much nicer than the problems generated by no growth.
Unfortunately, most planners and environmental regulators typically lack practical experiences in the real world. That combination results in a constant increase in regulations negatively affecting those who might want a new home, to go to a new shopping center, or work in a new office building.
Here’s the good news – fortunately, the American population is growing and the largest generation of Americans ever is just now entering child bearing age. This is positive for the acquisition of land not burdened by negative land use policies and environmental regulations. That combination means that good land investments today will show handsome returns over the next several decades.
