The COVID crisis upended social and economic life in ways that are still hard to predict. One central question is how hybrid work and shifts in where people congregate will impact housing, commuting, and the economy. This conference will explore the impact of shifting housing costs, changing work patterns, and demographic trends on the economic future of Massachusetts and New England. How will we address the immediate stressors and what are the implications of long-run trends? Economists, business, and policy leaders will share their perspectives and suggest possible paths forward.
