This may be the winter of Paul Krugman’s content. President Bush, whose economic policies Krugman has derided from the beginning, is leaving office.

And Norton has just published The Return of Depression Economics and the Crisis of 2008, a substantial revision of the book he originally published in 1999. Listen to an exclusive interview with Krugman by Newsweek senior editor and Moneybox columnist Daniel Gross.

Crisis? What Crisis?

Dennis Kneale on the Housing and Credit Crisis, June 27 2008 


National Association of REALTORS®Back to the President’s Report
Voices of Real Estate

– Posted by Dick

NAR has been trying for more than a year to put the current problems in the housing market in the proper perspective, telling the media and consumers that the housing “crisis” is really an isolated problem and that we already are working to fix it.

I have to give credit to Dennis Kneale for his commentary on CNBC last week. He provides the best assessment I have heard thus far about this so-called crisis and where the problem really lies. Listen to what he has to say and please forward this to your fellow REALTORS® and all of your clients today! – Dick Gaylord, 2008 NAR President
