Cancun Trade Talks... Economics of Reconstruction...

On school vouchers, John Thacker wrote,


Vouchers, depending on implementation, should decrease the strength of the link between housing and good schooling, since schooling would be less determined by where one lived. One would then expect the price of housing located in good school districts to fall relative to housing in less good school districts. This could have interesting and far-reaching effects. (Among other things, the price of urban housing might rise, and urban living become slightly more attractive.)
