America's Housing Crisis

America’s Housing Crisis: Private-Sector Responses and Public Policy Innovation

April 4-5, 2012

Agenda and Program | Conference Videos

The Richard Paul Richman Center, The Jerome A. Chazen Institute and The Paul Milstein Center along with Zillow and Progressive Policy Institute will host a housing forum aimed at exploring the ways in which the public and private sectors have responded to the unprecedented national housing crisis.

Nearly five years into its worst slump in decades, America's housing market is finally showing sparks of life. At the leading edge of this nascent rebound are a variety of public and private-sector innovations- creative ways for stoking demand, shrinking the debt overhang and revitalizing communities once laid waste by foreclosures. Join some of America's top housing experts and CEO's as they discuss and debate cutting-edge ideas for revitalizing the nation's housing market and its communities.

Housing in A Global Context April 4, 6 p.m., Columbia Club, 15 West 43rd St.

The world economies seem to be recovering from the financial crisis of 2008, but where are they headed? What opportunities will there be? What challenges will be faced by policy makers? What new forces are at work that we haven’t faced before? Unlike past recoveries we are confronted with unique challenges. In fact three big trends are interacting in ways that will impact all economies. Potential GDP growth rates are slowing in most large economies, populations of large nations with big GDPs are aging and the economic wellbeing of everyone is being impacted by inequality of income and wealth. Join us to understand these issues better and what policy challenges our leaders will have to address. Get a grip on what it means to you, your country and those around you as Neal Soss, Vice Chairman, Research at Credit Suisse explores many aspects of these three dynamics that will impact us all.
