Kim Hawtrey, one of my wonderful economics colleagues at Hope College, has a timely book set for release in October. Affordable Housing Finance, part of the Palgrave Macmillan Studies in Banking and Financial Institutions series,
is concerned with new financial solutions for the problem of housing stress--which has emerged as a major international challenge for advanced economies.
Kim previously was Chief Economist at Colonial Bank in Australia, and Economic Advisor with the Central Bank. He chaired a major national inquiry on housing, and has published several books and numerous scholarly papers on financial economics.
The volume is set for release on October 13. I will post again as a reminder upon its publication.
