Will the Real Estate Economy Please Stand Up - Elliot Eisenberg

Dr. Elliot Eisenberg at the 2014 Land Investment Expo

Elliot Eisenberg loves to speak about economics.  It can be about macroeconomic conditions such as GDP growth, interest rates, unemployment, inflation, and currency movements, or the health of the housing market and real estate, demographics, energy prices, household behavior, wages growth, income inequality, automobile sales and many other topics.  Over the last 10 years, Elliot has spoken to hundreds of groups on a wide variety of economic topics.  Here are descriptions of some of his most popular speeches:

The Economic and Energy Forecast

Attend this entertaining and informative presentation on the economy and energy. Dr. Eisenberg begins this talk by looking at how GDP growth will perform, what interest rates will do, and how wages, labor markets and other economic variables are likely to perform and impact the economy before turning his attention to how energy markets will behave over the next year. Learn how pricing for WTI, Brent and natural gas will perform, how the demand for petroleum products will change, what the expected impact of lifting the export ban on crude oil will do to world and domestic energy prices and international oil markets and the significance of fracking. Special attention will also be devoted to automobile and SUV sales, automotive credit conditions, new car registrations, changing American driving patterns, CAFE requirements, fleet age, renewable energy, gasoline taxes and more.

The Economic Forecast

In this always entertaining and very informative presentation on the economy that frequently begins with a fun and fast moving “top ten list” Dr. Eisenberg discusses how GDP will perform, what interest rates will do, how the labor market will behave, how much firms will spend, how the residential housing sector and real estate in general will perform and how a whole host of other economic variables (including incomes, auto sales, savings rates, energy prices, exports, government spending and so on) are bound to impact the economy this year (no sugar coating), and why!  Learn how to keep the (economic) forest in your view and not lose sight for the (data) trees!

The Economy and the Housing Market

This talk begins by reviewing the health of the national economy and the national housing market so as to better put into context local economic conditions.  Dr. Eisenberg first discusses GDP, inflation, employment, wages, interest rates and then moves on to housing prices, mortgage rates, new home construction, housing affordability, inventories, declining home ownership rates, demographics, and more.  Dr. Eisenberg then turns his attention to the condition of both the local and state economy and housing market and how they compare to nearby states and cities in terms of unemployment, employment growth, personal income, housing starts, housing prices and more.

The Unintended Consequences of Government Regulation

This absolutely hilarious presentation teaches audience members why, government intervention is generally a bad idea.  It may be a new CFPB requirement, a new building code requirement, higher capital levels for financial institutions, a rise in the minimum wage, or something completely different.  Whatever it is, this talk shows, using simple economics, how these regulations raise the price of whatever it is being regulated, decrease its supply, raise the price of alternatives, and moreover cause all kinds of negative unintended consequences which frequently hurt the very people the law is trying to help.  By the end, the audience understands what it takes to make better regulations that don’t create unintended consequences.

Economic Impact of Home Building

This talk shows how much income, how many jobs and how much tax revenue is produced by building new homes in your community.  Elliot focuses on the effect of the construction activity, the revenue multiplier that occurs when income earned during construction is spent in the local economy, and the ongoing impact that results from new homes becoming occupied by residents who pay taxes and buy locally produced goods and services.  He then compares the benefits of new construction to the one-time and ongoing costs new construction imposes on the community to see if new homes pay their economic way.
