The conference will offer a big picture perspective on the role that the capital markets play in the development of the housing market.

The conference will explore:

* Public v. Private Sectors: What is the purpose of the GSEs, where are they most valuable, what sectors of the market are better left to private hands?

* The Role of Investors: What is the role of investors in the markets? Whose capital is funding which sectors and why? Are the results logical and/or efficient? What is the role of the structured finance CDO market in channeling capital to the housing markets?

* Structural Economic Shifts: Is there a housing bubble? Are the fundamental structural changes in the mortgage market? Does the consumer view home ownership solely as a financing?

* Impact of Changing Regulatory Environments: Where are new regulations taking us? Is predatory lending legislation resulting in less mortgage credit?
