Title: Current Event

Article summary: In the Oregonian today, Tuesday September 27, 2011, the Los Angeles Times reported that “new home sales are stuck in a rut” (p. C1). A supply of six months is considered a healthy housing market, but the current supply is reported to be just over six months and two weeks. The median price also fell nearly nine percent in August.
connection to the chapters: Economics is “the social science that studies the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services” (Krugman & Wells, 2013, p. 2). Home sales are an indicator of economic activity.
