Rent control is a type of policy where a maximum cap is put on what a landlord may charge tenants.
I've seen two sources that suggest that there is an (edit: academic economists) consensus against rent control:
I'm not sure how much faith to put in these, and how non-controversial this topic is in practice (perhaps there are important subcases where it is a good policy).
Are there strong claims for rent control policies in relevant cases that are supported by a non-trivial amount of economists?
(Yonatan Cale thinks that there is a consensus against rent control. Help me prove him wrong and give him Bayes points!)
