Why Is Housing So Expensive?
Thursday, December 2, 2021
8:30 to 9:30 a.m. (ET)
Housing is fundamental to the economic security of families and the nation. Yet purchasing or renting a home has become financially onerous for millions. Why is housing so expensive? Are there untapped strategies left in the tool kit that we could and should be incorporating to better meet housing needs? As we think through strategies to address housing supply and housing affordability challenges, has the behavioral response to the COVID-19 pandemic fundamentally altered the housing landscape? Join Atlanta Fed president Raphael Bostic as he explores these topics with Edward Glaeser, chairman of the Department of Economics at Harvard University and a leading scholar of housing and the role of cities as economic engines.
