    The year 2018 marked the 10th anniversary of the 2008 housing crisis—an event described as the most significant financial and economic upheaval since the Great Depression. The year 2018 was also the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, which upended many decades of overt housing discrimination. Both events remind us of the significant role that housing has played in the American story—both for good and for bad. Despite the many financial reforms that followed 2008, meaningful housing reform remains elusive. None of the major candidates in the most recent presidential election truly addressed the issue in their policy platforms, and a lack of movement in resolving the Fannie/Freddie conservatorship is viewed as a major Obama administration failure. Additionally, housing segregation and access to affordable mortgage credit continues to plague the American economy. The program looks to explore these and related issues in the age of Trump.
