“A Comprehensive Look at Housing-Finance Reform”

Congress has wrestled with housing-finance reform in bits and pieces, such as re-pricing FHA guarantees and debating how to restructure Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. However, it has not yet considered housing finance from a global perspective, in terms of mortgage products, how those products are safely and efficiently funded, and the structure through which mortgage products are produced and delivered to American homeowners.   The presentation will review data on the amount of financing now provided to American home owners, discuss mortgage-product innovations such as the ratchet mortgage, funding innovations such as covered bonds, and explain why there should be much less reliance on mortgage securitization in the future.
