Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I guess putting homeless people in abandoned homes instead of bulldozing those homes would be totally unacceptable in US society.  Otherwise, I could see a lot of advantages to a properly run system such as that.  There are a lot of socially useful functions that many of the currently homeless could perform if they had a fixed address and a roof over their heads.
