DrDeth, here is an op-ed written by Krugman in 2000 in response to problems in San Francisco. It doesn't have the exact words "rent control leads to housing shortages" but it comes pretty close:
The analysis of rent control is among the best-understood issues in all of economics, and -- among economists, anyway -- one of the least controversial. In 1992 a poll of the American Economic Association found 93 percent of its members agreeing that ''a ceiling on rents reduces the quality and quantity of housing.''
