Ultimatley, there would be more (urban) housing getting built if credit was loosened up

Why would this be the case? Easy credit for homebuyers doesn't magically make it easier to build buildings in the city. It probably would lead to more conversion of existing units into higher-cost units (kick out low-income residents, gut and turn into condos).

That's why this constant call for raising the height limit is wrong headed.
You are the only person in this thread who has said anything about the height limit.
