In or near Sacramento this week? You may want to attend this free program, sponsored by the American Action Forum:
The American Action Forum will host a panel discussion at the Hyatt Regency in Sacramento on the devastating downturn of the housing market and painful recovery currently facing our nation. There’s no question California's housing markets and greater economy have been among the hardest hit, yet a comeback seems to be underway. What can California's story teach the rest of us? Is using eminent domain really a solution to our housing woes?
Join us for a complimentary breakfast as we hear from an exciting group of experts including Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former Director of the Congressional Budget Office, Daren Blomquist, Vice President of RealtyTrac, Richard Green, Director and Chair of the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate, Jed Kolko, Chief Economist at Trulia, Paul Herrera, Government Affairs and Communications Director, Inland Valley Association of Realtors, David Min, Assistant Professor of Law at the University of California, Irvine, and Gideon Kanner, Professor Emeritus at Loyola Law School.
Both panels will include an audience question and answer session.
One panel will discuss the use of eminent domain as a means to boosting the housing market, while the other will explore long-term solutions to the housing market crisis. See the full agenda and schedule here. Get your free tickets here.
If you can't make it, we're going and will post a report.
