Though the Bay Area has become one of the most expensive places in the world to live, housing affordability is by no means a local problem. Cities across the countries are struggling to tackle both high housing costs and household instability. Housing experts often debate whether the appropriate solution should be increased housing construction or stronger tenant protections, but the new book, The Affordable City, argues that a city can only be successful if the two work in tandem. In it, author Shane Phillips offers more than 50 policy recommendations — including a comprehensive look at the levers of supply, stability and subsidy. Join us to hear the moral and economic cases for how to address the housing crisis.
