Silicon Valley native currently in exile Max Dostart-Meers is focused on the intersection of the good life, the just society, and techno-optimistic capitalism. You can follow him on Twitter.

Part of the Saving the City series, this salon asks: Why does it cost so much to build anything nowadays?

In this salon, we will talk about cost disease in the construction of private residences and public infrastructure, which makes it increasingly difficult for human beings to change their physical world. How can we make it affordable to build beautiful things? Further, how does the difficulty of changing our physical world impact how we think?
