NO PLACE LIKE HOME: WEALTH, COMMUNITY & THE POLITICS OF HOMEOWNERSHIP
Join us for lunch and a talk with Brian McCabe on his new book, which looks at the challenges associated with our commitment to homeownership.
Professor McCabe’s recent book unpacks the challenges of strengthening communities through homeownership as owning a home has emerged as the core vehicle for building wealth in the United States. Tracing the origins of our commitment to homeownership to the early-twentieth century, the book offers a unique perspective on the enduring place homeownership continues to hold in the wake of the housing crisis.
