A conversation between Alicia Glen and Conor Dougherty about the economics of why housing is so expensive to build and buy, long held policies we should reconsider and ways local gov can invite, not just plan for housing.

His work focuses on the West Coast, real estate and wage stagnation among U.S. workers. Mr. Dougherty has covered economics and real estate on and off for a decade at both The Times and The Wall Street Journal.
