The Rise of the Homevoters: How the Growth Machine was Subverted by OPEC and Earth Day

Lecture Location: 
DeVoe Moore Center Conference Room, Bellamy 150E

William A. Fischel, professor of economics at Dartmouth University, discusses his conclusion that anti-development voters, fueled by the environmental movement and tax subsidies that made home ownership an investment opportunity, slowed the growth of the economy and perpetuated regional income inequalities. 

Fischel is probably best known for his work in economics on land use, property rights, and zoning. His research blends economic analysis with applied insights into the workings of the housing market and the land development process.
