Hudson Institute Center for Employment Policy and Center for Housing Policy cordially invite you to a conference entitled
Do Households Benefit from Financial Deregulation in the Mortgage Market?
Betsy and Walter Stern Conference Center
1015 15th Street, N.W., 6th Floor, Washington, D.C. 20005
The U.S. mortgage market has experienced phenomenal change over the last 35 years. The role that the housing Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, have played in the development of a secondary market in mortgages has been much discussed. Professor Harvey S. Rosen of Princeton University, former Chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers, presents a new paper assessing changes in the mortgage market. He finds that households are now more able to buy homes whose values are consistent with their long-term income prospects, but finds no evidence that the GSEs' activities have contributed to this. Richard A. Brown, Chief Economist of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and John C. Weicher, Director of Hudson’s Center for Housing Policy, will comment.
The Honorable James B. Lockhart III, Director of the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, will deliver a keynote address.
