Read the whitepaper
This report is the second installment of C.A.R.’s 2013 Roundtable Series, which brings together thought leaders for substantive conversations, and on this occasion, participants addressed the most pressing economic and regulatory issues facing the industry. This executive report summarizes analysis from a roundtable with four leading economists and finance experts convened by C.A.R. in September 2013.
C.A.R. CEO Joel Singer was joined by Professors Janice Eberly, Edward Leamer, David Min, and Richard Green for this event, and we are gratified they shared their invaluable expertise with the membership of C.A.R.
Led by Singer, the wide-ranging conversation covered market conditions, the financial recovery, mortgage finance, the regulatory environment, and housing policy. Actively pursuing such dialogues in order to elevate the best of industry thinking is reflective of CA.R.’s commitment to promoting the highest standard in real estate. The conversation also fulfills the goals of C.A.R.’s new Thought Leadership program, which advances intellectual engagement to maintain C.A.R.’s position as a leading housing organization.
