Professor Ventry Publishes Op-ed on Home Ownership

Professor Dennis J. Ventry, Jr. has published a commentary in the Sacramento Bee arguing that "home ownership promises more than it delivers" and outlining some "myths" about the benefits of owning a home.  "There are good reasons to buy a house," he writes. "But none of them involves attaining financial security, admission to elite colleges, a stronger economy, lower taxes, or the American dream."

Professor Ventry is an expert in tax policy and has written widely in the field. His research interests include family taxation, tax expenditure analysis, legal ethics and professional standards, tax and legal history, tax compliance and administration, and public finance.
