Rent control comes in many varieties in the U.S. In this talk, Prof. Edward Goetz of the University of Minnesota describes the range of different approaches that have been used by cities across the country and summarizes what the research says about their impacts. Goetz will then take a look at the Minneapolis and St. Paul initiatives and how they might affect the local housing market in each city.

His expertise is in housing and community development policy, especially as they relate to issues of race and class.
