This month, Insight In Per­son looks at the rela­tion­ship between finan­cial crises and real estate mar­kets, from hous­ing bub­bles to com­plex loans to com­mer­cial real estate ventures.

Charles Nathanson, an assis­tant pro­fes­sor of finance at the Kel­logg School, dis­cuss­es two stud­ies that help explain how house pric­ing errors and land spec­u­la­tion con­tribute to hous­ing bubbles.

Craig Furfine, a clin­i­cal pro­fes­sor of finance at the Kel­logg School, dis­cuss­es a strik­ing cor­re­la­tion between the com­plex­i­ty of com­mer­cial mort­gage-backed secu­ri­ties and the per­for­mance of the loans that make them up.

David Cocagne, an adjunct pro­fes­sor of real estate at the Kel­logg School and the CEO of Ver­mil­ion Devel­op­ment, and William Ben­nett, an adjunct pro­fes­sor at the Kel­logg School and founder of Lev­el Office Man­age­ment, join the pod­cast to share the strate­gies devel­op­ers use to mit­i­gate risk in a boom-and-bust market.
