Americans pride themselves on being able to fulfill what they have called the American Dream since the founding of the nation – whether in owning land or a home, the best health, equal justice for all, economic mobility, the best education, the best conditions of freedom and safety to pass on to their family, etc. This has been limited for many of them however, because of various discriminations, along with the politics of power with its economic, legal, and social distribution of preferences. Policy makers frequently find themselves in the middle of choices and trade-offs, and the BPC Housing Commission is no different in trying to set a course between strategic goals and low-hanging fruit of near-term pragmatic objectives with the present demands and needs as expressed by the interest groups represented on the Commission.
