Abstract [en]

In this comment it is argued that Christophers´ misunderstands the nature of the post warhousing model in Sweden. This was actually a market friendly model where rent and priceregulations were seen as something temporary and that an increase in supply was the mostimportant policy. It is further argued that it is a mistake to describe the development inrecent decades as a move towards a neo‐liberal model. Even if there are no state subsidies,there still is a municipal planning monopoly that reduce the supply of land. Municipalitieshave become more and more restrictive towards new construction, and a combination ofNIMBY‐arguments and environmental demands have especially reduced the number ofhousing projects targeting households with lower incomes.
