Housing finance plays a ubiquitous role in our personal lives, the national economy, and in global capital markets. The size and importance of the housing market is such that over a stable 60-year period, three years of disruption destabilized the global economic faultline and fundamentally altered the balance between renting and homeownership.
This session examines the social impact of changes in the U.S. housing ecosystem, how those changes are now quantified and predicted, and the effects of declining homeownership and the rise of the rental society. Speakers will also look at what Big Data is revealing about how we live, where we live and what types of homes we are living in.
