So,  you are NOT pro-growth in a community, unless it is a low-income area?

My response to your post was a statement of facts, not my opinion.  The tax incentives in question are not meant to target neighborhoods where no incentive for development is required.

That's not answering my question. My post was about using "gentrification" to argue putting limits on growth in a neighborhood.

I'll rephrase. Are you pro-growth, and for pro-growth incentives in a community, only if it is a low-income area?

That was what your post was about, yes.  Which is why I responded with the facts that should make it clear that this isn't germane to a discussion re: the Opportunity Zones tax incentives.

In part but not only because applying those incentives in areas where they were intended would speed up gentrification in those neighborhoods, not limit it.

And I did not answer your question because it similarly had zero relationship to anything I wrote.

I see.

You oppose funding economic development, unless it's in the right neighborhood.

Still, it's good to know that gentrification doesn't harm a neighborhood, as many tend to believe. And since you like "facts".

...a study from NYU’s Furman Center suggests that residents of public housing in wealthier and gentrifying neighborhoods make more money, live with less violence, and have better educational options for their children, despite also facing some challenges. Second, a study from the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank finds that there has been much less displacement of existing residents from gentrifying neighborhoods than is commonly feared—and that those who do leave aren’t necessarily more likely to move to lower-income neighborhoods. And finally, a Columbia University study on gentrification in London also failed to find evidence of widespread departures in neighborhoods with rising average incomes.

I am pointing out, apparently to someone to obtuse to understand, that the tax incentive in question exists in order to fund economic development in neighborhoods where that economic development would not otherwise happen.

Clearly, you have a dizzying intellect, and would like to move away from your own point of view.

As clearly, you've shown that you are opposed to economic development, unless it's in the right neighborhood.

I think you are trying to have your lunch and eat it, too.

Michael Cohen tweeted on 12/19/15, almost exactly 3 years ago: "@HillaryClinton when you go to prison for defrauding America and perjury, your room and board will be free!"

My number 1 radio host disagrees.

My no1 radio host;

https://www.2gb.com/show/the-alan-jones-breakfast-show/

 Australia’s most popular talkback presenter, Alan Jones is a phenomenon. He’s described by many as the nation’s greatest orator and motivational speaker. Alan has the mind and capacity to make complex issues understandable to the largest Breakfast audience in Australia.

Gotta love Alan.

From Alan's radio station page;

https://www.2gb.com/controversial-sex-therapist-takes-aim-at-male-bashing-feminists-with-mentoo/

Controversial sex therapist takes aim at ‘male bashing’ feminists with #MenToo

You’ve heard of the #MeToo movement, now a controversial gender commentator is spruiking #MenToo.

Former clinical psychologist-turned-social commentator, Bettina Arndt, is taking aim at militant feminists who are destroying innocent men.
Bettina argues we live in a male-bashing society these days and says it’s time for it to stop.

The author tells Chris Smith [doing the show while Alan is on holidays] her new book #MenToo is a direct shot at those feminists.
“It’s really designed to get up their nose.

“I’m just fed up with the feminists controlling the public discourse around important issues to do with men and women.”

And so are bambu-ilk.

Ethnic cleansing...

Bad idea, Mr Trump...it will not make you popular, but most of all it's just not fair...and a fair President you really should be aiming to be.

"Jones is a supporter of the Galileo Movement, a climate change denial group which argues that climate change is a hoax perpetrated to form a world government."

Yeah, that tells me more than I needed to know about this former national rugby team head coach.

You can believe him from now until Sydney is flooded, Bambi, but I will tell you it is like believing Trump when he tells you that Kim Jong Un is denuking or that nobody knows who killed the reporter or that he had the biggest crowd at his inauguratiion.

With all of his law-and-order talk, I think Trump doesn't understand the concept of laws and how law enforcement officials should enforce them.  It isn't only that he feels he should be immune, but that the relationship should be political/transactional:

https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/12/politics/huawei-executive-donald-trump/index.html

Well.....lets watch it play out.

We all know you are concerned that Trump not be successful.  We will tie that in if its ok by you.
