Housing, Urban Development, and the Macroeconomy

Homes in a row.


The USC Dornsife Institute for New Economic Thinking organzing committee invites submissions of research papers for presentation for its upcoming conference on "Housing, Urban Development, and the Macroeconomy" to be held on April 6-7, 2018 at the University of Southern California.  Confirmed speakers include; David Albouy (University of Illinois), Morris A. Davis (Rutgers Business School), Kristopher Gerardi (Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta), Matteo Iacoviello (Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System), and Joe Vavra (Chicago Booth).

The focus of the conference will be on the inter-play of housing markets and the economy at the national and different spactial levels, states, regions, urban centers, and local neighborhoods.  Papers that study the relationships between housing markets and finance and between housing markets and spatial disparities and their implications for the macroeconomy are also welcome.
