Conference on China's Real Estate Markets
On April 17, NYU Stern’s Center for Global Economy and Business (CGEB) and Center for Real Estate Finance Research (CREFR) co-hosted the Conference on China's Real Estate Markets. Led by Professors Jennifer Carpenter and Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh, director of CREFR, the conference brought together leading experts on China's real estate markets for an in-depth discussion of the origins of the Chinese property boom and a study of its consequences for the Chinese macro-economy, financial institutions and markets, government and the rest of the world. Nobel Laureate and Professor Michael Spence delivered the lunchtime keynote talk, and Professors Jennifer Carpenter, Paul Romer, Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh and Robert Whitelaw served as moderators for panel discussions.

A complete overview of the conference presentations can be found on the CREFR website.

Professor Kim Schoenholtz, director of CGEB, also highlighted the conference discussions in a recent article on his blog.
