The National Community Reinvestment Coalition last week brought together a panel of experts to discuss the future of housing finance within an uncertain future for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Called, “Locked Out: What Losing Fannie, Freddie, and the Affordable Housing Goals Will Mean for the American Dream,” the panelists discussed the consequences of GSE reform, and what's missing from the conversation about its possible elimination.
The speakers included Gary Acosta, co-founder and CEO of National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals; James Carr, senior fellow at Center for American Progress; Bill Emerson, CEO of Quicken Loans; Jim Millstein, chairman and CEO of Millstein & Co.; Dedrick Muhammad, senior director of the economic department and executive director of the Financial Freedom Center, NAACP; Aaron Smith, co-founder and CEO of Young Invincibles; John Taylor, president and CEO of National Community Reinvestment Coalition; Mitria Wilson, director of legislative and policy advocacy at National Community Reinvestment Coalition; and Dr. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics.
The full discussion aired on C-SPAN on Jan. 31 and is available to watch here.
