"A landlord does not have to explain...but the story is pretty clear when they decline comment".
Not to me, maybe they just don't want to get into a public pissing match with a tenant.
Indeed! What possibly could be gained?
Markets are constantly changing in response to
changes in tastes, populations, technology, incomes, etc. Even in a strict economic sense such "change" is not so much about greed but responding to that which is the best use
for a scarce
And just what malevolent force is this driving this change? The consumer!
Yes, it is the lowly consumer
who, through "voting" with his meager supply of hard-earned $$$, acts indepently (yet, effectively in concert) with his like-mined fellows to effect change.
I am certain that there was much wailing, gnashing of teeth, and economic disruption as community after community "died" when the whaling industry failed in the face of cheap kerosene.
Such change is the "creative destruction" of free markets; it is driven by the soverignty of free individuals - acting in their own self-interest - in their vital role as consumer.
