Tenure: faculty verses housing

One of my good friend mentioned that In United States, true contribution of research (or in other words radical research) starts after getting tenure. Before tenure faculty members do not take risk for radical research because it may harm in getting a tenured position. And after a long talk I observed tenure position is very important for research especially radical research.

I revisited the issues of tenure in housing. How tenure is important in housing? I felt that there is great linking in tenure for radical improvement in housing especially for urban poor.

But How we are unaware and the very same 'tenure' is more stressed in academic domain but less stressed in solving housing issues for urban poor.

There is need to link urban slum problems with their tenure of land in more depth. Let us build our cities slum free with maximum tenure of land to underprivileged section of society.
