Building A Housing Policy That Works.
This year’s Economic Outlook Conference will be held on June 1st, 2012 at the Fluno Center in Madison, WI. With budget battles looming and the presidential election already in full swing, 2012 is sure to have monumental implications for housing policy. Unfortunately, developing and advancing bipartisan solutions to fix the nation’s ongoing housing challenges have proven difficult in today’s highly polarized political environment. But housing is not only a basic human need—it is also a critical element of our economy. Now more than ever is the time to take a fresh look at this issue.
This conference will present varied perspectives and analysis on current issues while stimulating ideas on how to spur the housing market and get the U.S. economy back on track for solid growth. Those involved include experts from the public and private sectors who are involved in government, business, and academia—all of them are on the front lines of housing market research, policy, and practice.
Featured speakers for the event include:
Karl “Chip” Case: Chip is the Co-Founder of the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index and Professor Emeritus of Economics at Wellesley College. He is author or co author of five books, and is renowned for his contributions to the economics of housing and public policy.
Lawrence Yun: Lawrence Yun is the Chief Economist & Senior Vice President of Research for the National Association of Realtors®. He has been listed among the top 10 economic forecasters in the country, and has been named among the 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders.
