Despite recovery in many housing indicators, the homeownership rate continued to fall through the middle of this year. The question of whether the U.S. is experiencing a permanent retreat from homeownership or simply the last stages of the historic crash in the housing market was explored by this presentation’s main speaker, William R. Emmons, senior economic adviser at the St. Louis Fed’s Center for Household Financial Stability.
