Technology and the Industrial and Post Industrial Revolutions

Kathe Newman (Planning and Public Policy)

In this course, we will explore the technological changes that made the recent housing boom possible.  We will discuss computing capacity, and the development and implementation of automated underwriting and credit scoring, and the expansion of home mortgage lending via the Internet. While technological changes leading up to the industrial revolution are appreciated, we are only just now reflecting on the technological changes that made the post-industrial revolution possible.
