Enough is Enough

People experiencing financial hardship are not looking to get to the high levels of comfort which many suburbanites and above enjoy.

People in economic distress aren't looking to achieve high levels of comfort in their daily lives.  They are looking for basic security and simple accommodations.  A bed a bath, a place to call home and a way to get to work.  There needs to be financially viable housing practices which can both be profitable and serve a broad base of good people who don't need 2-car garages, 3 bedrooms, porches and big yards but only a way to facilitate an affordable life of basics.  In my own town a complex of studio only apartments would be full all of the time but the developers only build mansions.
