Howard Husock – The Poor Side of Town and Why We Need It


American Enterprise Institute senior fellow and Philanthropy Roundtable Executive Senior Fellow Howard Husock joins us to discuss his new book on housing policy, The Poor Side of Town and Why We Need It. We discuss various “housing reform” movements over the past century that actually wiped away once-thriving neighborhoods and private home ownership for many immigrant and minority communities, and what California policymakers can learn form a century of policy mistakes as they seek to alleviate the state’s housing crisis.
