Professor Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh's joint research on income and housing prices
— November 12, 2016
Excerpt from The Economist -- "A paper published in 2010 by Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh, of New York University, and Pierre-Olivier Weill, of the University of California, Los Angeles, found that the association between incomes and house prices had strengthened. Between 1975 and 2007 house prices became ten times more sensitive to wages. As productivity and wage gaps across metro areas widened, house prices also diverged. This trend has continued."
