MORTGAGE FINANCING CRITERIA AND THE 2008 RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY ASSET BUBBLE


Join Ed Dodson as he provides an insider’s account of the 2008 property bubble.

In this interactive webinar, Edward Dodson discusses the mortgage finance sector ’s response to the declining affordability of residential properties that began in the early 1990s and culminated in the crash of 2008. The discussion will highlight the gradual erosion of lending requirements by Fannie Mae as the main cause of the housing bubble and offer a number of recommendations to minimize the potential for a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis.

Speaker: Edward Dodson
Date: Thursday July 8th, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

    IS IT LAWFUL TO PAY TAXES TO CAESAR? HOW TO END THE US FISCAL IMPASSE?


    In his two most recent HGSSS talks, Dr. Perry described current Federal Reserve policies as unprecedented but apparently required by competing political dynamics which make it impossible for Congress either to raise taxes or to cut spending. This latest talk presents a deep analysis of the theories, the history, and the politics of Federal taxation and spending, and offers specifics for the implementation of a Georgist alternative to resolve the current fiscal impasse.

    The instructor, Dr. W. E. Perry, has long been engaged in developing the tools of semantic analysis to help better understand determinism, causality, and the emergence of new properties from a variety of data sources.
