why live at the base of a volcano?greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread
I've seen pictures of housing burning down because they are in the way of lava flows, but why build your house so close to a volcano, especially Kilauea anyway? Is it something to do with space or good soil?

I think the answer is economic. Lots and houses near the volcano are cheaper.
