A Futurist, Economist and Journalist Walk into a Room and Talk About Housing At the 2019 NHHFA Housing & the Economy Conference

October 30, 2019

Get a look into the future of housing and economic trends at New Hampshire Housing’s fall conference, which will feature a futurist, economist and journalist. Other speakers will discuss the Granite State’s affordable housing and economic development needs. The nationally known experts presenting are:

JOHN MARTIN, CEO of the Institute for Tomorrow, a futurist, generational expert, and self-proclaimed provocateur, who will talk about the defining features of the Boomer, X, Y & Z generations and how their needs and interests will impact the future of housing – from design to planning to land use and construction. He’ll give examples of how comprehensive planning has stimulated the development of a range of housing, and the implications and opportunities the future offers.

RALPH MCLAUGHLIN, deputy chief economist for CoreLogic, will analyze housing economics, and discuss national trends, public policy and affordable housing. 

LAURA KUSISTO, the Wall Street Journal’s housing and the economy reporter, will discuss national trends and interview Martin and McLaughlin. 

Dean Christon, executive director of New Hampshire Housing, will provide an overview of the state’s housing market, and there will be a federal and state legislative update.
