About This Event

 

Though policy responses to and studies about the causes of the US housing crisis abound, the relationship between collateral value and housing cycles has received scant attention. The summer 2013 conference — cosponsored by the Collateral Risk Network, Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University, and AEI — will focus on housing cycles and their domestic and international systemic impact. Experts from the US, Europe, and Canada will address efforts and proposals to moderate housing cycles by using countercyclical lending policies.   

 

More than 150 people attended last year’s conference. At this year’s conference, Karl Case, cofounder of the S&P/Case-Shiller Index of Real Estate Prices, will give a keynote address and will be designated as a Bowles Distinguished Scholar. A keynote by Bill Isaac, chairman of Fifth-Third Bank and former chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, will conclude the first day of the conference. Overall, you will hear from six panels of experts from academia, the appraisal industry, the financial community, and regulatory bodies.

We welcome you to participate in person or to watch the event live on this page. Full video will be posted within 24 hours.
