Siqi Zheng, Professor, Tsinghua University, China

Chinese apartment buildingDr. Zheng will present her work estimating urban households’ willingness to pay for various quality of life amenities. She uses compensating differentials in the housing prices within a city and across cities in China to construct integrated quality of life measures. Her work shows that a growing number of Chinese households are demanding greater amenities and a higher quality of life when seeking housing. The results of this study have important implications for public policy design and real estate pricing strategies.

This talk is sponsored by the Center for Urban & Regional Studies’ Program on Chinese Cities and the Carolina Asia Center.
