Oakland Pours Water On Chance For Amazon HQ2 By Obsessing Over Housing Issue

Amazon HQ2 will be somewhere, but to consider Oakland? Why not? Oakland has all of the basics Amazon could want, but it has one problem: poor self esteem.

Oakland does not believe it can handle its affordable housing problem. That attitude is a far cry from the Oakland of the past.

That Oakland knew how to use tax increment financing to solve its problems. 11 year ago, Oakland had double the affordable housing budget it has today.

Oakland can’t want others to want to be in it, if it has no confidence in its ability to improve itself.
