Rent control is the CAUSE of housing shortages. Notice that all American cities with perpetual housing shortages have rent control, and heinous building regulations. What developer in their right mind would build something in this environment? You never hear about Chicago having citywide housing shortages. Why? Because there's no rent control. And rents are a hell of a lot cheaper than "market rent" in cities with a lot of rent controlled apartments.

Not my idea but I sure can't find a flaw in the plan.

How about coordinating the whole thing and getting enough people to act in the same way at the same time to actually make it work? And then there's the matter of what happens when you force a company out of business after they've tried to sell a product for less than their costs?

Just a couple of the many problems with your simpleminded plan.

Completely off topic: what would be the best way to physically disable the wifi capability of a device. Obviously you can disable in software, but I'm the paranoid sort, and would love a way of knowing that my IP web cam is not gonna be doing anything with that wifi antenna. Thinking maybe some kind of terminator or some other way of "absorbing" the signals.

That's easy - dunk it in water. You'll obtain the exact functionality you are asking for.

The end of labor is to gain leisure.
