Atlanta Fed Blog Gets Renewed Focus
By many accounts, the housing market is considered to be integral to the U.S. economy. It serves as an excellent bellwether for the health of the national economy, be it through the lens of payroll employment; its contribution to GDP growth; exposures of financial institutions to acquisition, development, and construction lending and residential mortgages; or changes in the level of personal consumption due to wealth effects. Given that real estate is more important to the Southeast's economic activity compared to that of the rest of the country, we at the Atlanta Fed like to stay on top of emerging trends in real estate in general, and in housing in particular.
The Atlanta Fed's other blogs have covered real estate and housing, along with a wide variety of other topics relating to monetary policy, macroeconomic developments, and regional economic matters (see the links below). With this relaunch, we hope to foster dialogue on topical research and current issues in the fields of housing and real estate economics. We intend to publish weekly posts covering takeaway points from our conferences and speakers, analysis of recent academic research, commentary and observations on recent data releases and survey results, and highlights of working papers we find to be especially interesting. We encourage your active participation in this blog and look forward to collaborating with you.
