HOUSING IN NEW YORK CITY – WHAT IT TAKES TO TACKLE THE AFFORDABILITY CRISIS

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

Location: Online via Zoom

Note: Access information for Zoom will be made available after registration.

    THE FED’S OTHER MANDATE: FACILITATING AND REGULATING WAGE SLAVERY


    This talk continues our analysis of macroeconomics begun in January with our lecture “The Fed Has Lost Control of the Money Supply.” Just as the previous talk explored emergent properties in the Fed’s management of the money supply which were evident to a Semantic Analyst but were not otherwise perceived by conventional macroeconomics. This talk will focus on similar emergent properties of the Fed’s efforts to control unemployment.

    The instructor, Dr. W. E. Perry, has long been engaged in developing the tools of semantic analysis to help better understand determinism, causality, and the emergence of new properties from a variety of data sources.

    Instructor: Dr. W. E. Perry
