The housing and economic crises have exerted a strong and lingering impact on housing markets across the nation.

Using matching procedures on linked data containing property, loan, and transaction characteristics, we ...

The equilibrium structure of the city has either (i) no commuting ("mixed-use" form) or (ii) a central business district (CBD) of positive radius and a surrounding residential ring.

Quantitative results approximate observed correspondences among these outcomes across U.S. metros. Traffic congestion proves the critical force constraining population. Self-driving cars significantly increase the sensitivity of metro population to ...
