Industry Intelligence Webinar Explores The Risks That Could Derail The Long-awaited Housing Recovery
Industry Intelligence Inc., a market intelligence and information management company serving the forest products, packaging, and food and beverage industries, recently announced Forest Economic Advisors’ (FEA) macroeconomist Brendan Lowney will discuss potential risks to the relatively optimistic housing outlook in an Industry Intelligence sponsored webinar on August 15, 2012.
The long-awaited U.S. housing recovery has emerged at a time when the risks to the U.S. economy appear to be increasing in both magnitude and number. This uncertainty has many stakeholders in the wood products and timber sectors questioning the staying power of the recent upturn. On August 15 Forest Economic Advisors’ macroeconomist, Brendan Lowney, will discuss several of the key risks to the relatively optimistic housing outlook that has become the consensus view.
Lowney’s presentation will address a variety of concerns including:
• The Euro area is unraveling: Could this trigger another global financial crisis?
• The bursting of the tech and housing bubbles each triggered recessions in the U.S.: Are student loans the next shoe to drop?
• The vast majority of U.S. recessions have been preceded by rapid increases in oil prices: What are the chances that recent oil price declines will be reversed rapidly in the near-term?
• Will massive U.S. government deficits eventually trigger a spike in interest rates is the primacy of the single-family home under threat? Are Americans ready to migrate to multi-family housing in large numbers?
