Roundtable Series 2013 Executive Report: Tomorrow’s Housing
For the first time C.A.R.’s Thought Leadership initiative had a presence at the annual EXPO. CEO Joel Singer was joined by three engaging experts for a substantive panel discussion on the future of housing. The panel, titled “Tomorrow’s Housing: The Future of California Real Estate,” addressed how future housing markets and public policy can reflect the needs and desires of Californians, and why addressing concerns about affordability and upward mobility will keep the American Dream of homeownership attainable.
The panelists included author Joel Kotkin, an internationally-recognized authority on global, economic, political and social trends; author Joe Mathews, California editor for Zócalo Public Square, a Los Angeles-based ideas exchange that combines daily humanities journalism and live events; and Perry Wong, Director of Research at the Milken Institute.
Panelists concluded that the future is not a given when it comes to real estate, and that public policy and facts really matter in shaping the future lives of everyday Californians and where they call home.
The insights of this conversation are shared in the third executive report from the Thought Leadership Program’s roundtable series:
