The critical role that property plays in shaping identity influenced the housing bubble, as people competed for status, and has exacerbated the housing crisis, as people have felt a deep psychological sting from the fallout. This essay examines these dynamics and argues that the link between property and identity provides a lens through which to rebalance housing law and policy.
