If one stops thinking of housing in the traditional way and instead think of it in the same way as an investment in gold, one that holds value in the long term, then the government's housing bonds made a lot of sense. Gold doesn't pay rent, but it also doesn't call you in the middle of the night about broken plumbing.

With it being part of a large fund, there was no risk at all, other than the usual market fluctuations. Plus it was actually providing homes for people, getting our country back on its feet.

As a bonus, the social housing bonds created real social mobility, erasing generations of inequity.

In the pandemic the president created a government backed housing bond that bought up the homes of people who could no longer afford rents. It gave the public a safe investment, it got landlords out of financial difficulty and it gave real home security to the nation when they needed it the most.
