Housing is a critical part of the U.S. economy, and the primary means of generating wealth in this country. Where you live matters. It affects health outcomes, social and economic mobility, where you go to school, and every aspect of your quality of life. In this course, students will learn about the government-backed policies that institutionalized residential segregation and created the housing disparities we see today. We will discuss federal housing programs for homeownership, public housing, and rental vouchers, the housing market, and the subprime mortgage crisis.
