In this week's interview, Chief Correspondent Steve Scher talks with Conor Dougherty about the fight for housing in America. Dougherty outlines why developers aren't building homes for millennials the way they did for baby boomers, and explains the factors that led to this decline. He discusses the rise of Nimbys ("not in my backyard") and the growing movement against gentrification. Dougherty encourages us to ask ourselves which outcomes we want when it comes to housing, and encourages us to petition for big-picture solutions like rehabilitating affordable housing, increased density, and lower cost housing production.
