The Silver Lining of the New Gilded Age: Fewer Targets 22.10.2018 American Prospect
At noon on January 17 of this year, activists began protesting outside the Blackstone Group’s New York City headquarters over the private equity giant’s foreclosures in Puerto Rico. Simultaneously, a social justice group in California released a report detailing Blackstone’s alleged mistreatment of thousands of the state’s tenants. The timing was no coincidence. The extreme concentration of economic ownership and power in 21stt-century America is creating more opportunities for disparate groups—from renters and unions to community groups and financial reform organizations—to ally against common adversaries and pressure them for broad concessions. This growing collaboration points to what some see as a necessary reaction and potential silver lining to the New Gilded Age. “The same guys own everything,” Stephen Lerner, a veteran community and labor organizer, told a crowd of labor leaders in New York City late last year. “We can align our forces in a different way because we have the same enemy.” Nurturing ...

Closing the New Affordable Housing Gaps 27.8.2018 American Prospect
AP Photo/Jeff Roberson A low-income housing complex under construction in St. Louis, Missouri Robert Goldman always kept close tabs on Capitol Hill tax talk. Reform proposals had been bopping around Capitol Hill in recent years, but nothing had happened.  Before the 2016 election, the Montgomery Housing Partnership (MHP), a non-profit affordable housing organization in Silver Spring, Maryland, that Goldman heads, had started the intricate financing process required to renovate Parkview Manor, a 1950s-era complex of more than 50 low-rise garden-style apartments that the nonprofit organization owns in Hyattsville, Maryland, a northeastern suburb of Washington. Designed for people of modest means, many housing developers see garden apartments as a tear-down worthy relics of a bygone era. Luxury buildings with more and smaller apartments are all the rage now, ones that command higher rent than fewer dwellings on a larger tract of land can. But since MHP owns the affordable housing development, Parkview ...
