Demystifying Housing Supply/Demand Theory for San Francisco
All seats for this community event have been allocated. Any reserved seats not claimed by 6:00pm on Thursday November 7 will be re-issued on a first come first served basis. There is also standing room for about 35 people available for this event.

Economists, city planners, policy think tanks, and media outlets have lately been advocating for a supply-side "solution" to San Francisco's longstanding housing affordability crisis. Build, build, build is the argument  at a rate of 5,000 units of housing construction per year for 20 years (far above what San Francisco has ever built). Eventually, and with enough incentives and deregulation to stimulate and sustain that unprecedented volume of development, they argue that the price of housing in San Francisco will stabilize and actually decline.

But does this Economics 101 theory really work for the housing market in San Francisco?

Why is housing now getting more expensive and out of reach for most San Franciscans even as more is being built in this latest wave of development?
