UK Housing Benefit Cuts

This caught my attention, mostly because I don’t know very much about affordable housing policies in the UK.  The Guardian provides some insight, through its article on housing benefit cuts, into the vast differences that exist between types and degrees of governmental involvement in the urban housing economies of America and Britain.  Although, when you consider the amount of revenue that the US public sector loses annually by maintaining the mortgage interest deduction, the American system may actually be more generous.  As long as you aren’t actually, you know, poor.
