Prof. Christopher Berry cited in piece from The Chicago Defender

In a piece from the Chicago Defender entitled "Chicago’s Enduring Legacy of the Black and Unhoused," reporter Nicole Jeanine Johnson consulted Harris Prof. Christopher Berry as a source on the failure of the Bring Chicago Home ballot referendum: 

Prof. Berry affirms, “We’re in a different moment now economically in the city than we were back when the Fair Tax was proposed. The real estate crisis [is] just a broader marker of the crisis surrounding the future of downtown. [And] that’s for real. I think most Chicagoans know it, and they can see it, and we all really need to be worried about it because it is the economic engine of the region.
