Event description

Description

Author and Hunter College Urban Studies instructor Samuel Stein untangles the 217 trillion dollar global real estate industry, pointing to the practitioners of city planning as the unseen interlocutors between finance, government, and housing. In a conversation with The Nation contributing editor Liza Featherstone and economic analyst Doug Henwood, Stein makes the case for residents adopting tactics of urban planners to reclaim the right to their city.
