John Vlahoplus '83 to give talk about housing crisis Dec. 4

John Vlahoplus ’83, director at Credit Suisse, will give a talk, “Left Behind: How the federal government and not-for-profits sacrificed American homeowners and renters in the recovery from the Great Recession,” at 7:30 p.m. on Thurs., Dec. 4 in the Hillel House multipurpose room.

Vlahoplus and his partners argued that in light of little federal action on the housing crisis, local governments should use their eminent domain authority to modify underwater loans, allowing homeowners to keep their homes.

A Rhodes Scholar, Vlahoplus will also host a breakfast for students interested in pursing the scholarship at 8 a.m. on Fri., Dec. 5 in Elrod Commons 216, followed by drop-in hours for students with questions about national fellowships from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. in Elrod Commons 216.
