In a city that attracts some of the most successful people in the WORLD, R.E. prices will be high; its a fact of capitalism.  For the rest of us, SF could look to Singapore who has the same problem 5Xfold.  What they've done is create a  government-owned housing system that works under the free-market system, but down-shifted the price points to match the incomes of the average Singaporean. 

From what i've seen, it think their model is the best way to preserve capitalism and people's dignity without becoming a socialist state.

interesting idea

So how much housing did they build and how did they price it?  Do you have more info on this?
