How Biden hopes to fix the thorniest problem in housing

“To say, ‘We’re not going to give you money for affordable housing if you don’t make it easier to build affordable housing, [which is hard] because you don’t want affordable housing,’ — it’s ridiculous. You need carrot and stick, not carrot or stick, to make it work.” – David M. Dworkin

What Biden’s infrastructure plan does for housing

“It’s a historic amount of money, but we have a historic-size problem, and even this amount of money is not going to solve the problem. We have to keep in mind – when we talk about infrastructure, there’s not a great history of infrastructure investment succeeding without housing investment. They really need to go hand in hand to positively impact communities. So I think the housing component of the bill is very important.” – David M. Dworkin
