One of the basic needs for all living creatures is shelter. And for humans, shelter goes beyond mere protection from the elements. In fact, in our society it is even known as the American Dream. A place of one's own, a place to call home, and to raise a family, a place to refresh and seek refuge from the outside world, a place to feel safe. However, over the past several decades, the American Dream has undergone some changes. No longer is the American Dream simply a matter of bricks and mortar, a haven away from the mad world at the end of the driveway. Today, the American Dream is a complex maze of rules and regulations, lists of "do's and don'ts", of and a place that no longer provides quite the same degree of safety and autonomy as it once did.

On The Commons this week is Professor Evan McKenzie. Evan is a Political Science professor at the University of Illinois, Chicago, an attorney and a frequent speaker at national and international conferences on the many issues of common ownership developments. One of the first people to take a critical look at the changes taking place in residential America, Evan wrote the award winning Privatopia: Homeowner Associations and the Rise of Residential Private Government (Yale University Press 1994). He also maintains a blog at http://privatopia.blogspot.com/. Please tune in to On The Commons this Saturday. We'll talk about lessons learned in homeowner associations, the current trends in housing, the expectations of housing consumers, and try to figure out what's in store for the future. You won't want to miss this show.  Download Evan McKenzie
