Housing Supply, Labor Markets, and Economic Growth

Bipartisan Policy Center

Location: Online

While the insufficient supply of affordable homes in the United States leads to higher housing costs, it can also limit mobility, productivity, economic growth, and opportunity. This webinar will highlight the research demonstrating the relationship between housing supply and the labor market, including worker mobility and productivity, followed by a discussion with private-sector experts on how high housing costs and the lack of affordable homes are impacting their businesses, employees, and economic growth.
