Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

There is a wide consensus that the roots of the last financial and economic crisis lie in the housing market boom (and subsequent bust) in the United States and other developed economies. In spite of this, the literature on the effects of monetary policy on the housing market is still not well developed. Some argue that lax monetary policy was not causal in creating the speculative dynamics in the housing markets prior to the crisis, see Dokko et al. (2011) or Luciani (2015); however, more evidence is needed.

This issue calls for papers that expand the state of knowledge and also take a look at emerging economies as well as at the international spillovers from housing markets in developed economies to emerging ones.
