WTTW. Chicago Tonight interview from August 2nd.
“We’re facing tremendous increases in costs on all fronts. We’re also facing tremendous increases in risk,” Garvey said. She added that in her view, the real problem behind skyrocketing rental prices is the lack of housing. We have a shortage of rentals. If rent controls were put in place it removes incentives to balance the market with more supply, so the shortage would get worse.
