The article highlights the impact of zoning regulations or lack of transparency on the political process, and how that affects urban development and opportunities for young people. It may be that we can have a better solution for everyone (or at least more people) by analysing the issues better. I think there's a worthwhile debate to be had here and that the article mentions some potentially useful avenues of enquiry.
I still think it sounds a lot like whining, but the points on healthcare, the emerging gig economy (and possibly zoning
- I dont known the details there) are valid.
There does need to be some adjustment in the balance between labour and capital in many developed economies - the US, the UK and HK are great examples. Whether this is achieved at the ballot box or at the end of a pitchfork I don't know - possibly he latter given how captured US politicians are.
Australia, the Nordics and Japan do a much better job of less income inequality and fairer social agreements.
