Over the next fifty years the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates the U.S. population will grow by less than half the pace experienced since 1973. An aging populace, changes in household formation, and new workforce dynamics are among the trends impacting all sectors of the municipal market. Against this backdrop, New York City faces a perplexing problem of rising unaffordability and a declining population (according to Census figures).

The panel will explore how demographic trends impact credit quality, the housing affordability crisis, and implications for the New York City area. Audience members will come away from the discussion with a better understanding of key demographic shifts to watch, how they may impact the City’s finances, and potential policy options to address the region’s housing shortage.

Please join us and our panel of experts who will share their thoughts on these issues impacting municipal credit.
