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.

Special Presentations by Nobel-Winning Economist Joseph E. Stiglitz and Chairman of Hang Lung Properties, Ltd., Ronnie Chan
