Housing in California is excessively expensive—four of the most expensive housing markets in the U.S. are found in California. San Francisco is the costliest housing market in North America, San Jose is third, Los Angeles is fifth, and San Diego ninth. California housing is expensive because of a severe shortage resulting from government policies that have disincentivized home building. Can market-based reforms help alleviate the state’s housing crunch? Join PRI’s Young Leaders Circle for a discussion on California’s housing crisis and potential solutions to the problem.
