February 16, 2011 Politics, Markets and Housing
As the state and nation slowly recover from a two year recession triggered by a widespread collapse of the home mortgage markets, we will take stock of the impacts this collapse has had on people in Maine. What has been the fate of people who lost their homes, or were marginally housed even prior to the collapse? What will we do to help people worst affected by the crisis?
Join our dialogue at 10:00 AM as we discuss the politics and economics of homelessness.
We invite your calls and email with questions and comments.
