Can New Suburban Housing Make Urban Areas More Affordable? (HJCHS)

Over the past 30 years, home prices and rents in urban centers grew faster than in the suburbs, while most of the new housing that was built was in the suburbs. In this talk, Meyer Fellow and PhD candidate Valentine Gilbert will discuss research he conducted with Robert French that asks whether continued suburban expansion can alleviate rising housing costs in urban areas, or whether urban centers will have to grow denser to become more affordable.
