Hide / Show Abstract

At its most basic level the US recession was brought on by housing and real estaterelated financial problems. Steps that can be taken to strengthen the economy and reduce the likelihood and severity of similar issues in the future include: reducing overinvestment in housing and increasing the resilience of the mortgage market; revising financial supervision; repairing the household balance sheet and reducing the current account imbalance; and ensuring the preservation of labour market flexibility following the current troubles.
