Effective Housing Policy

March 24, 2021 @ 12:00 am

Housing policy is again capturing the national spotlight. Local policies have restricted the development of new housing stock and as a result, in places like San Francisco and Seattle, housing prices have skyrocketed. But even smaller cities like Kansas City have seen the impacts. What are the underlying causes of the phenomenon, how great are the impacts, and what policies can help alleviate the problem?

“Effective Housing Policy” will feature our host Patrick Tuohey, as well as special guests Emily Hamilton and Kirk McClure. Hamilton is a Senior Research Fellow and Director of the Urbanity Project at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, and McClure is a professor emeritus of urban planning in the University of Kansas School of Public Affairs and Administration.

Submit your questions for our guests to dolesocial@ku.edu for the question-and-answer portion of the program.

This special program will be live-streamed to the institute’s YouTube channel and to its website, www.doleinstitute.org. Due to continuing concerns regarding the novel coronavirus pandemic, the program will only be available online. Follow the Dole Institute on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter for updates regarding this and future programming.

The Dole Discussion Groups are made possible by a grant from Newman’s Own.
