This week, I have a conversation with economist Dr. Kevin Gillen , Vice President of Econsult  and is affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania as a Research Fellow in its Institute for Urban Research , through which he publishes his quarterly updates on the current state of Philadelphia’s housing and condominium markets . He’s been sharing his research each quarter  with the readers of my other blog, Matrix for which I am grateful.
In the podcast we cover his Philadelphia Housing Indices, as well as the three key economic hurdles facing the Philadelphia’s housing market:
Problems with the accuracy and proposed redistribution of tax assessments
Much of his commentary is in the context of the US housing market.
Note: I am still experiencing a lag in the audio capture via the combination of Skype and WireTap Studio so there are moments where it sounds like I am interrupting the answer. Please overlook this – I’ll figure it out eventually and it doesn’t detract from the clarity that Kevin provides to a complex housing situation.
