David Lereah Watch Makes Chicago Tribune Article

My spinoff blog, The David Lereah Watch, made it into the mainstream media. Here is an excerpt from a Chicago Tribune Article:
Lereah and his fellow housing industry economists don't come out unscathed. Critics say they generated unfounded optimism that the housing market would soar perpetually.

"In October 2005 Lereah was busy calling the bubble believers `Chicken Littles,'" goes one post in a blog dedicated to criticizing the economist, davidlereahwatch.blogspot.com. "Many of the predictions espoused by the `Chicken Littles' are fast becoming closer to reality. ... David Lereah has lost credibility because of his irresponsible cheerleading."
I had a 25 minute interview with the reporter for this story. She ended up quoting something that was already published on the David Lereah Blog. The housing industrial complex need to be challenged. David Lereah and the National Association of Realtors have been engaging in digraceful behaviour.


  1. David -- the Trib article requires registration. What is the site of your DL blog? Would be nice if you post it on your right-hand pane.

  3. David,
    Many congrats! That is so great - keep the flame on "High" and the truth under the magnifying glass.

  4. Keep Up the great posting david.




  5. Think back to the days prior to blogs -- who would have been countering the NAR's self-interested and outrageous pronouncements?

    Keep 'em on pins and needles, David.

  6. Congrats Dave! So glad both your blogs are still alive and well, as a bubblehead perspective is still needed to counter the lies and exaggerations of NAR and their members. Congrats once again!

    BTW, were are the housingheads now? They have been unusually silent lately..hehehehehe....
