    “As a society, it’s in our interest for our government to provide services to small business owners who are in danger of losing their investments and equity, after all they do the bulk of hiring in this country..
    If thi suggestion sounds to paternalistic, we’re open to suggestions.
    We believe that property owners should be entitled to sell and new owners should be entitled to make a reasonable return on their investment.
    It’s a tough situation we at EGP know first hand. The offices where we are located have been sold and we must undertake the heavy cost of moving to another location.
    It’s no ones fault; it’s just the way things are. We understand the financial risk investors are taking when they enter a new market, and empathize with those who feel the burden of paying for the risk.”

  2. I wish I could remember where I read that the city of Paris has a program to buy up empty storefronts or buildings
    in order to rent them out to new business and cafe owners at a FAIR rent, enabling them to get a start, and to
    cut down on the urge by investors and landlords to gouge everybody and “poison the well” in up-and-coming neighborhoods… oh, well
