At his testimony before the Joint Economic Committee in Congress this past October, Bernanke specifically acknowledged the role of housing in our nation’s economic recovery and job growth and the challenges facing builders in today’s market. He described the historic implications of housing in past economic recoveries, the importance of housing to today’s recovery and the challenges facing builders, including the abundance of distressed and foreclosed properties, stringent credit conditions for builders and potential buyers, and the large number of ‘underwater’ mortgages. His understanding of the contributions that builders can make to the economic recovery sets a platform for his discussion at IBS.
