00:53:22 Takeaways and Conclusions
00:55:00 #1: What is the effect of the changing compositions of households -- that is, the number of people in each household, which is said to be shrinking?
00:57:15 #2: A recollection of personal experience as an immigrant buying housing in Philadelphia -- not realizing at the time what an enormous investment in upkeep it would be, which counted against the "profit" when she sold it years later.
00:59:51 #3: What are the factors that attract immigrant groups to buy housing that other groups are vacating?
01:05:55 #4: Others argue that the U.S. should encourage the immigration of more high-skilled, high-paid immigrants. How does the impact on housing factor into that policy argument?
01:10:49 #5: How do you disentangle growth in immigrant ownership from the growth of so-called global cities, where foreign investors own much of the real estate?
