Will aging populations lead to a housing glut? Laura Kusisto, reporter at The Wall Street Journal, argues that generational churn will leave houses – and in fact, whole neighborhoods – empty as baby boomers age and millennials flock to coastal cities and refuse to replace them. Kusisto argues that these demographic changes could cause a chronic oversupply of housing that will have profound impacts on the economy and society. Filmed on December 10, 2019 in New York.
