11 a.m.: Zoom: Gated Communities Gated communities are a fascinating phenomenon. What motivates humans to voluntarily barricade themselves in? Medieval cities were walled, but their walls enclosed the sum total of their population. Today’s gated communities are a market response to perceived government failure to ensure maintenance of property market value. Let’s ruminate on some twisted sociology and savor the crumbling. -- Host Tyson Hauf.
