Berlin authorities hired 64 people to hunt for people renting out apartments on a short-term basis: berliner-zeitung.de/berlin/air

Imagine if they put those people to work on finding ways to increase supply of affordable housing!

@pinkprius I'm of the view that we need more options when it comes to accommodation, including short + medium term rentals, rather than reducing options.

In the long term, I find it hard to believe that banning Airbnb & co will have much (or any) impact on generating a supply of affordable housing.

@pinkprius @thomascarney as an IT person, I like that this discussion is using powers of two.

@thomascarney Well, any regulations or laws are useless in this city without control.
That is truly sad.
