What are the political, social, and economic forces shaping the future of housing in New York City and globally? How do we negotiate the ideals of development and community preservation, between maintaining affordability and attracting a larger tax base, and between the free market and government intervention? Economist Edward Glaeser, author of Triumph of the City, joins sociologist Miriam Greenberg for a spirited exchange of ideas — moderated by WNYC reporter Matt Katz.
