Could not agree more

I completely agree with Anthony Anjello’s recent letter to the editor (“Homeless don’t come from nowhere,” June 27). The roots of our housing crisis lie in an economic system that values production for the sake of profit as opposed to production based on the needs of the people. 
It’s estimated that there are 20 million homes in the United States that remain unoccupied year round or almost year round — and yet there are still anywhere from 500,000 to 2 million Americans without shelter on any given night. We cannot house everyone in a system that puts profit above people.
