It’s the land

While reading this article in the WSJ, titled Land Prices Increasingly Drive Housing Markets and then John Miller’s opinion, I was reminded of John Adams’ investment philosophy:

It had long been an article of faith among the Adamses that land was the only sound investment and, once purchased, was never to be sold.  P. 34-35, John Adams by David McCullough

They just aren’t making any more land. Land costs rise, construction costs rise, development costs due to regulatory inefficiencies and bureaucracy rise – where is the affordable housing?
