CEO Connect: Tax reform failed to address desperate need for new construction

Redfin's chief economist Nela Richardson shared her insights during a special morning of programming at Inman Connect New York

What’s Important, What’s Not?” Tuesday morning at Carnegie Hall. “We haven’t been all that innovative in housing policy for quite a while.”
