From The Great Depression To The Great Recession: On The Failure Of Regulation In The Mortgage Market, Dov Solomon 2016 Notre Dame Law School

From The Great Depression To The Great Recession: On The Failure Of Regulation In The Mortgage Market, Dov Solomon

Journal of Legislation

People tend to attribute the outbreak of the 2008 financial crisis to deregulation. This article challenges this view and presents a unique perspective of the crisis as in fact rooted in the way the residential mortgage market is regulated. Focusing on non-recourse mortgage legislation, which is a unique feature of the US mortgage market dating back to the period following the Great Depression, the article analyzes the contribution of this legislation to the onset of the Great Recession.

Micro-Housing In Seattle: A Case For Community Participation In Novel Land Use Decisions, Patrick Carter 2016 Seattle University School of Law

This is especially true when such development projects raise the possibility of substantial impacts on the character of a community ...

Whither Workforce Housing?, Matthew J. Parlow 2016 Marquette University Law School

Whither Workforce Housing?, Matthew J. Parlow

Fordham Urban Law Journal

The last forty years have marked a dynamic era in affordable housing. During this time, affordable housing shifted from being largely government-owned to privately-owned, though certainly supported by government efforts. This evolution thus marked a distinct switch from a supply-side approach to a demand-side approach to affordable housing. As states and localities adapted to this paradigm shift, some high-priced metropolitan regions discovered that their housing markets were squeezing out middle-income service workers, such as police officers and teachers. In response, many localities—and some states—adopted various laws and policies to spur the creation of workforce housing: that is, moderately-priced ...
