           poverty

    • Authors: John Fitzgerald; Robert A. Moffitt
      Abstract: A new method of measuring poverty in the United States—based on families’ spending and easily accessible resources—finds that about eight million more people lived in poverty in 2019 than reported by the government’s conventional income-based approach, according to a paper to be discussed at the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA) conference on March 25.…

  • What have they been thinking' Homebuyer behavior in hot and cold
           markets: A ten-year retrospect

    • Authors: Robert J. Shiller; Anne K. Thompson
      Abstract: Homebuyers’ emotions may partly explain soaring home prices during the COVID-19 pandemic but, at least so far, the run-up doesn’t look like a classic bubble, suggests a paper to be discussed at the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA) conference on March 25. From August 2020 to August 2021, home prices, as measured by the…

  • Understanding the economic impact of COVID-19 on women

    • Authors: Claudia Goldin
      Abstract: Despite widespread reports of a “she-cession,” most women managed to keep their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic, suggests a paper to be discussed at the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity on March 24. That was a mixed blessing, however, because women—much more so than men—bore the brunt of caring for children and elderly parents. “Far…

  • Cryptocurrencies and decentralized finance (DeFi)

    • Authors: Igor Makarov; Antoinette Schoar
      Abstract: The fast-growing decentralized finance (DeFi) system—the collection of finance applications built on blockchain technology—holds promise for a new financial architecture that can eliminate the need for traditional intermediaries (such as banks, brokers, and exchanges) and reduce rents (excess profits) in the financial sector. But it also generates formidable challenges for regulators, according to a paper…

    • Authors: Susan Cherry; Erica Jiang, Gregor Matvos, Tomasz Piskorski, Amit Seru
      Abstract: Massive government-mandated and private-sector debt relief during the COVID-19 pandemic was well-targeted and helped mute economic distress for millions of Americans, finds a paper discussed at the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA) conference on September 9.

    • Authors: Shelby R. Buckman; Laura Y. Choi, Mary C. Daly, Lily M. Seitelman
      Abstract: Longstanding racial and ethnic disparities in the United States have hurt not only the people who experience the disparities but have hurt all Americans by depressing U.S. economic output by trillions of dollars over the past 30 years, suggests a paper discussed at the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA) conference on September 9. The…

    • Authors: Ricardo Reis
      Abstract: Monetary policymakers trying to judge whether elevated inflation this year will persist should—heeding past lessons from the United States and abroad—carefully track inflation expectations, suggests a paper discussed at the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA) conference on September 9. The author—Ricardo Reis of the London School of Economics—examined the expectations of consumers, professional forecasters,…
