  • Product Description

    Should an Ohio state agency provide low-interest loans to home buyers moving into areas in which they are "racially under-represented," even if they are whites in affluent suburbs moving into neighborhoods which might otherwise "tip" to become all-black? The Ohio Housing Finance Agency confronts the questions of whether racial underrepresentation should be defined in percentage terms--and whether racial integration per se represents progress for black homebuyers. The case explores the history of efforts to manage racial integration in suburban Cleveland and highlights competing philosophies regarding the role of government in influencing residential racial patterns. It allows for discussion of ways in which public values evolve through the policymaking process.
