The Vanishing American Dream

Please join us as Randal O’Toole explains what is going on with our housing. Yes market prices are skyrocketing, but that is not the only issue. In fact, there is an even greater looming issue and that is the federal government who is posed to sweep down into our communities, into our very own neighborhoods and rip them apart at their seams. If you have not heard of HUD’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) and Section 8 Housing, you will want to attend. These programs will utterly remove all local control and turn zoning ordinances on their head. The federal government will dictate who can live where and what each municipality and county must do to obey the U.S. Department of Housing and Development (HUD). And you will even have to pay for them to destroy your city. For more information go to

Randal O’Toole is a Cato Institute Senior Fellow working on urban growth, public land, and transportation issues. O’Toole’s research on national forest management, culminating in his 1988 book, Reforming the Forest Service, has had a major influence on Forest Service policy and on-the-ground management. His analysis of urban land-use and transportation issues, brought together in his 2001 book, The Vanishing Automobile and Other Urban Myths, has influenced decisions in cities across the country. In his book The Best-Laid Plans, O’Toole calls for repealing federal, state, and local planning laws and proposes reforms that can help solve social and environmental problems without heavy-handed government regulation. O’Toole’s latest book is American Nightmare: How Government Undermines The Dream of Homeownership. O’Toole is the author of numerous Cato papers. He has also written for Regulation magazine as well as op-eds and articles for numerous other national journals and newspapers. O’Toole travels extensively and has spoken about free-market environmental issues in dozens of cities. An Oregon native, O’Toole was educated in forestry at Oregon State University and in economics at the University of Oregon. and
