Robert Shiller On State Of U.S. Housing Market

Yale University Economics Professor Robert Shiller appeared on Bloomberg Television this morning. The Nobel Prize winner, who correctly-called the dot-com and housing busts of the last decade, discussed the state of the U.S. housing market. Dr. Shiller told viewers:

People are needing houses. They’re buying them. There are not enough houses out there- the inventory is low. So they push the price up. And it’s a modest price increase. Nothing scary or exciting. This could go on for some time

No mention of another “housing bubble” in the works. Whereas fellow “crash prophet” Jeremy Grantham, the British-born investment strategist and founder/former chairman of Grantham, Mayo, Van Otterloo & Co., uttered this warning in his latest investment newsletter:

Thus, unlikely as it may sound, in 12 to 24 months U.S. house prices – much more dangerous than inflated stock prices in my opinion – might beat the U.S. equity market in the race to cause the next financial crisis
