Analysis

There is a shortage of housing. When supply is short, prices rise. Free markets tend to keep supply up with demand. Supply is not keeping up in the area of housing. Zoning is quoted as a key limiting factor in the supply of housing.

Extrapolated to the greater picture, it may be stated that legal barriers are - likely the main - block to an adequate supply of housing.
