Here’s a video from last-month’s debate at The Urban Institute on the merits of private community associations . (HT Daniel Kuehn) Defending private community associations is the always-wise Bob Nelson. (And here’s an abstract of one of my favorite pieces of research on the topic . 😉 )

David Henderson debates Ian Fletcher .

It’s to his credit – and my discredit – that David has more patience with such people than I have.
