In a previous post, I asked readers about their thoughts on the reasons behind rapid rise of homelessness in this country. In another one, I asked about your thoughts on the rapidly declining living standards in western countries such as UK. Of course, in this area USA, once again, leads all other western countries. And this brings me to the topic of this discussion- namely, the slow motion, but accelerating, decay of housing stock in USA. Have you noticed that lots of residential and commercial buildings in in once prosperous cities and towns are being abandoned and starting to decay. While some might say this is a old phenomena which has been occurring in the Midwest since the 1980s, I have noticed that it is becoming far more widespread all over the country-including in areas which one would not have expected.
