Share Affordable Housing for All? A Policy Discussion

Event Details

The rent is too damn high in New York City. But why is it so high? Who is most affected by it? And what should we do? Is high rent simply a measure of a city's success? A scourge for the poor? Are the affordable housing initiatives of the De Blasio administration simple justice? A wasteful program driven by politics? These and other questions will be addressed. 

Welcome and Introduction

Provost John Coatsworth, Columbia University

Carl Weisbrod, Chairman of the New York City Planning Commission

Gilles Duranton, Dean's Chair in Real Estate Professor, Wharton

Ingrid Gould Ellen, Paulette Goddard Professor of Urban Policy and Planning, NYU
