America has an entirely new type of slum we haven’t seen here since the 1930s, the product of 42 years of the Reagan Revolution. We call them “tent cities” along with their more upscale neighbors: roadsides lined with old RVs and cars in which desperate or hopeless people live. Instead of referring to their denizens as slum-dwellers, we call them the “homeless,” and their numbers have grown so large in the past decade of our neoliberal experiment that they signal an undeniable national housing crisis. America, in other words, more and more resembles a Third World nation.
