If after surviving mugging, pillaging, the depredations of your employer and other low and high crimes of piracy you and fellow travelers arrive at your destination, each with pocket money and wanting a place to call home, you'll find that you're bidding against your travel chums for your preferred beddie-bie spot. And the tendency will be to offer all you can afford in order to avoid fleas, lice, and snoring neighbors. What you're willing to offer--not for the domicile but for the location of the domicile--is called Economic Rent by economists.
And so it is that the Last Pirate never puts a cutlass or dirk to your person threatening injury if you don't pay; rather the Last Pirate meekly says, "There's another spot down the road if you prefer, but as it is there are ten applicants for this location and they're offering 40% of their income."
Come along on a walking tour illuminating how to put the Last Pirate's booty to work for society. If you're walking the plank of housing endangerment and are keen on more than wailing, drowning, or listening to the apologias of Kim, Avalos, Campos, Farrell, Mar, Tang, Breed, Yee, Wiener, Cohen, and booted Christensen, then pull the pillow case off your head early this morning and stumble downtown to take the most liberating, intellectually electrifying walking tour of SF real estate that exists!
And it's free.
