  Economic Rent Experiences @ TheBottomDollar.com (The Bottom Dollar)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
It is not a true rent, because there would have to be an expectation of earning back the original investment in order to induce the original investment, and, if the original investment was not repaid, the specialized asset may be allowed to wear out, without repair or replenishment, in such use as could be obtained.
Rent can be viewed as an estimate of how much market prices for an input would have to change, before the allocation of that particular input would change.
This corresponds to the notion of a producers' surplus or "scarcity rent." This type of economic rent arises because of scarcity in the supply of inputs.

 Rent Control, by Walter Block: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics: Library of Economics and Liberty
Rent control, like all other government-mandated price controls, is a law placing a maximum price, or a "rent ceiling," on what landlords may charge tenants.
Paradoxically, then, even though rents may be lower in the controlled sector, they rise greatly for uncontrolled units and may be higher for rental housing as a whole.
Because tenants outnumber landlords and are usually convinced that rent control is in their best interests, they are likely to invest considerable political energy in maintaining rent control.

 Consumer Price Indexes for Rent and Rental Equivalence
The CPI Housing Survey is the source of the data on residential rents used to calculate changes in rents for the Rent of primary residence index.
Rental equivalence measures the change in the implicit rent, which is the amount a homeowner would pay to rent, or would earn from renting, his or her home in a competitive market.
Because the rent and rental equivalence indexes measure the change in the price of the shelter service provided by both renter-occupied and owner-occupied housing, segments were selected with probability proportional to estimated total expenditures for rent and implicit rent.

 Concepts & Issues: Rent Seeking - general features
Rent seeking requires that it be possible and advantageous for the relevant actor to do something which is not advantageous for the system as a whole.
Rent seeking is extensively linked with corruption (although politicians’ favours to clients or lobbying by interest groups are not in themselves corrupt behaviour - a certain exchange of information between politicians and the population is essential for the functioning of the system).
Rent seeking can be described as corruption at the point where politicians and bureaucrats specifically exploit their current opportunities to manipulate the existing institutional framework so that in future it serves their own private interests.

A rent stabilized apartment which becomes vacant and could be offered at a legal regulated rent of $2,000 or more per month is no longer subject to rent regulation.
Since the legal regulated rent that could be charged is $2,000 or more, the apartment is no longer subject to rent regulation, and the owner would be free to charge whatever the market can bear.
For example, even if the rent that could be charged following a vacancy is at least $2,000, the apartment remains stabilized for at least the duration of the receipt of the applicable tax benefits.
