Abstract

Although the topic of housing – housing prices, housing policy, housing finance – has largely fallen by the wayside as a “hot” news item, these issues remain largely unresolved. This paper reviews the recent history of housing finance and housing policy, examines the realistic policy choices, and offers some recommendations.

Keywords: housing policy, housing finance, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Federal Housing Administration, residential mortgages, mortgage-backed securtities
