Host: Center for American Progress. Out-of-control home mortgage finance practices are the origin of today’s financial market tumult. Effective solutions to today’s crises require stabilizing and rationalizing housing finance. Yet, amidst these dramatic market developments and rapid changes in the federal role in the mortgage market, there has been much heat but little light shed on the system of housing finance and the public purposes it must serve.
In cooperation with the Institute for Urban Research at the Wharton School of Business, the Center for American Progress is hosting a public forum on the past, present, and future of federal policy toward the mortgage markets.
