JonC >> No zoning laws becomes zoning anarchy.

The first U.S. zoning laws were established in NYC in 1916. From 1790 to 1915, the population of America grew from less than 5M to around 100M. Each decade prior to 1916 saw more than 20% population growth. After 1916, no decade has reached 20%. If non-zoning America was such a scary place to live, why did it's population grow so fast?
