Economics for Progressives

Progressives seek greater economic equality, universal medical care, affordable housing, and free education but targeting these problems via direct legislation seems to be their preferred policy tool. Are there any unintended consequences to this approach? What other remedies are there to consider? Join us as Professor Fred Foldvary of San Jose University leads our interesting and timely interactive seminar.

Henry George School of Social Science is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
Time: Jul 31, 2019 06:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

    The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the housing affordability crisis affecting many American households, especially those living in large metropolitan cities like New York.  Although the federal and local governments have enacted various emergency responses, these were, at best, stop-gap measures.

    This panel aims to identify the root causes of the problem and present alternative pathways to a more enduring solution.

    Our panelists:

    • Hailie Kim: Housing Organizer for the Minkwon Center
    • William Spisak: Senior Program Associate at New Economy Project; Professor at Queens College
    • Celeste Hornbach: Senior Policy Advisor at Office of the New York City Comptroller
    • Marty Rowland: Senior Fellow at the Asset Leadership Network

    Date: Thursday, December 15th, 2022 – Time: 2:00 PM – 3:30PM ET
