ProJo: My Turn: Lauren H. Carson: R.I. should address third-party rental platforms

Technology keeps changing everyday life in ways that were unforeseeable only a few years ago. A decade ago, probably few people would have believed that our economy would soon be changed by apps that would let you hail a cab online, or websites that would utilize crowdsource funding for entrepreneurs or charitable causes.

ProJo: Editorial: HUD plan would place added burden on poor

How does one square the messages about housing affordability from the federal government? On the one hand, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development says people who spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing costs are “housing-cost burdened.” That’s why the government has traditionally helped subsidize housing for low-income people who would otherwise be priced out of the housing market. On the other hand, the agency said this spring it intends to change the rules to raise the housing burden to 35 percent of a household’s gross income. HUD Secretary Ben Carson says the lower subsidies would encourage people to find jobs, or better-paying jobs.
