Comparing International Housing Systems

Lunchtime Forum

With the chronic shortage of homes reaching crisis levels in the past several years, many in the Bay Area wonder if there is a better way to organize the production of housing. As it turns out, even within market economies, a wide variety of systems exist for the planning, financing, development, ownership and operation of housing. Come hear about examples from around the world.
