It is often said that the United States has the best housing-finance system in the world, and this contributes to the belief that America has the highest rate of home ownership among the developed nations. But is this really true? There are a number of innovative and successful systems of housing finance in other countries, and there are several European countries with higher percentages of home ownership than the United States. At this conference, experts will explore how other developed countries finance home mortgages and compare these systems to those in the United States.
