[Recording]The Economic Impacts of Housing Production Policies – Marley Buchman and Michael Wilkerson, ECONorthwest
How can regions meet their housing needs while minimizing infrastructure costs and environmental impacts? What options do policy makers have for incentivizing smart growth?
We cordially invite you to a guest webinar on Wednesday, January 24th from 2 to 3 p.m. EST by Michael Wilkerson, Ph.D., Project Director and Senior Economist at ECONorthwest, and Marley Buchman, an Associate at ECONorthwest. They will discuss a study they conducted examining the economic effects of high-density, transit-oriented development.
Dr. Wilkerson and Mr. Buchman will explain how they estimated the supply elasticities of housing and the underproduction of housing from 2000-2015 nationally and for each state. They will review their simulations of different scenarios, comparing current development patterns with high-density housing located close to transit. Based on their analysis, they will evaluate the economic and environmental implications for alternative housing policies.
