Show #223 | Guest: Randy Shaw | Show Summary: The class divide in America's big city has a companion: a generational breach. Long-time housing activist and attorney Randy Shaw says that, through policy and politics, Baby Boomers have contributed to the urban housing crisis - leaving millennials out in the cold.
Shaw traveled the country, visiting housing stakeholders in a dozen urban centers. He spoke with renters, homeowners, builders, politicians. His new book, Generation Priced Out: Who Gets to Live in the New Urban America, combines these interviews with policy critique and details on plans that work getting housing built. And he questions some long-standing conventional wisdom - for example, the inevitability of gentrification.
