Manhattan Institute scholars Howard Husock and Edward Glaeser participate in a housing policy conference at the American Enterprise Institute.

For more information, check out the event at the American Enterprise Institute.

The Conference on Housing Affordability, sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute, Bank of Israel, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Tel Aviv University, and UCLA, will bring together economists, policymakers, and real estate industry professionals to discuss the causes of and solutions to one of the most serious problems in the United States and other countries: the shortage of housing affordable for lower- and moderate-income households. The conference will discuss government and private-sector programs designed to promote affordability, the role of regulatory constraints, innovative mortgage products, and other topics to identify the most effective path forward to make housing affordable again.
