GLOBAL POPULATION PROJECTED TO LIVE IN CITIES BY 2030

One of the most troublesome aspects of housing development in America is that the housing being made isn’t the housing that is needed. In recent years, smaller, more accessible homebuilding has lagged behind the construction of upmarket, luxury homes with greater margins. From Harvard:
