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? This video features BCP co-founder 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.
