We aren't usually one for promoting events where people are promoting their books, but when one half of the Case-Shiller duo comes to town we'll make an exception. Robert Shiller, Professor of Economics at Yale, will be at Politics and Prose to discuss his latest book Finance and the Good Society on Mar 28 at 7:00 pm.
After the jump is a few minutes of him on Bloomberg TV discussing the main themes of the book, housing, and the stale job market. You might also be interested in some thoughts on why the Case-Shiller index isn't all that helpful when looking at how the DC area market is actually doing.
