Kathryn Howell and Ben Teresa (Virginia Commonwealth University) are part of the RVA Eviction Lab which gathers data on eviction rates. They say high eviction rates destabilize communities, cause high turnover in student populations, and reduce community engagement and access to community networks and jobs. People who live on or near American Indian reservations are being denied access to consumer credit. Valentina Dimitrova-Grajzl (Virginia Military Institute) says redlining is a factor. Dimitrova-Grajzl has been named a 2019 outstanding faculty member by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. Later in the show: Michael Lewis talks about his newest book, The 5th Risk, about the consequences of giving people control over our government agencies who have no idea how they work. Michael Lewis is the author of The Blind Side, Moneyball, Liar’s Poker, and The Big Short, among many others.
