First Annual Scholarship Conference featuring David Rusk and David D. Troutt. Nationally recognized metropolitan scholar and former Albuquerque Mayor David Rusk will present his article, Measuring Regional Equity, followed by a moderated discussion with the distinguished audience of elected officials, scholars, activists, representatives of non-profits and the public. CLiME director and Rutgers Law Professor David D. Troutt will also give a talk on the structure of place-based inequality, including a reading from his new book, The Price of Paradise: The Costs of Inequality and a Vision for a More Equitable America. Prof. Troutt will discuss and field questions about: • The assumptions that created and threaten the American Dream • The importance of inclusiveness or mixed-income living arrangements • Problems with the “culture of poverty” thesis • Why Martin Luther King was right

Faced with a growing crisis of homeowner residents whose properties are “underwater” or already in foreclosure, many cities around the United States have explored the possibility of expediting mortgage principal write-downs through the extraordinary exercise of eminent domain.
