Housing and Household finance

Conference
28/08/2017 to 29/08/2017
Norge Bank, Oslo

​The role of the housing market and household indebtedness in affecting financial stability and the wider economy is at the forefront of discussions in policy institutions and in academia. The purchase of a home is the largest investment most individuals make during their lifetime and changes in households’ home equity may have distributional consequences. Much ground is not covered and key questions remain unanswered regarding the role housing plays in the macroeconomy. Access to large and detailed micro data may sharpen our understanding of these issues.
