Fixing Homelessness Should be Easy

In theory, homelessness should be a trivially easy social ill to correct since eliminating it has negative dollar cost — you save millions by correcting it in any given city each year, however, in practice, solving it is intractable. Why? The homeless are the politically correct scapegoats. People have no interest in why people became homeless; they despise them and wish them ill.

It may be that:

People will put considerable effort into persecuting the homeless and stopping them from acquiring housing.
