NAI Global Chief Economist Dr. Peter Linneman just released his latest white paper titled Beware of Inflation.
In his latest white paper, Dr. Linneman questions how it is possible not to have inflation in the U.S. economy when healthcare and commodities prices are rapidly increasing and Federal and State governments are running record deficits. Dr. Linneman examines the impact of CPI increases, the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy, government deficits and other factors that will lead to massive inflation in the US economy.
The white paper analyzes the impact that inflation will have on commercial real estate, forecasts the direction of interest rates and provides investment and financing strategies for property owners seeking to shield themselves from inflation’s destructive power.
Dr. Peter Linneman, NAI Global’s Chief Economist and Principal for Linneman Associates, stated in his quarterly economic outlook seminar yesterday that the dynamics are in place to see a surge in the US economy. He sighted a number of positive signs that conditions have stabilized and that will help create a surge by year’s end:
- 1,000,000 jobs were created
- Retail sales are up
- Pent-up demand for new households
- Corporate profits are at all-time highs though very few are distributing it in the form of dividend payments, stock buy-outs, etc.
- Households and businesses that were very leveraged by 2007 have now decreased their debt to show improved finances and balance sheets
Job growth is key. As jobs are created, new households form, consumer confidence rebounds, corporate profits go up and the economy stabilizies. The momentum building so far points to a hopeful outlook for 2011.

PRINCETON, NJ, June 22, 2010 – The BP oil spill that has continued for more than 60 days has caused widespread environmental damage and is already affecting shipping, fishing and tourism, but commercial property experts in the region do not believe the accident will have a significant impact on Gulf Coast real estate markets, according to a special report released today by NAI Global.
Commercial real estate leaders from markets bordering the Gulf of Mexico and renowned economist Dr. Peter Linneman weigh in on how experts are quantifying the impact of the oil spill, and provide regional on-the-ground observations of how property markets are faring today. While some markets may see a temporary up-tick resulting from the cleanup efforts, most do not expect any long-term impact, positive or negative, on supply or demand, the primary factors influencing rental rates and property values.
NAI Global, the world’s premier managed network of commercial real estate firms and one of the largest real estate services providers worldwide, has a presence in markets all along the Gulf Coast, including New Orleans, LA, Pensacola, FL, Mobile, AL, Fort Myers, FL, and Houston, TX.
While there is no questioning the potential environmental impact, Dr. Linneman, NAI Global’s Chief Economist, suggests that political activists are inflating the economic impact of the oil spill, and that the impact on the Gulf Coast’s economy in general and real estate in particular will probably be minimal.
“This spill is the most overhyped problem we’ve seen in the past six months,” said Dr. Linneman. “The overall economic impact to the nation will be trivial.”
Join NAI Global Chief Economist Dr. Peter Linneman for a discussion on the economic recovery, the big lessons we’ve learned over the past 10 years, when jobs will return, why 2010 is a point of inflection for commercial real estate and why inflation is the big wildcard. Dr. Linneman will also be available to answer your questions during this free event. Register today!
NAI Global – Commercial Real Estate – Worldwide: “Robust Growth Will Follow Economic Recovery’s Slow Start, Says NAI Global Chief Economist Dr. Peter Linneman
The Great Recession has officially ended and recovery will be far more robust than anyone can imagine, according to a new white paper from NAI Global Chief Economist Dr. Peter Linneman. The economic recovery is examined and Dr. Linneman provides insight into the leading indicators that the market is stabilizing and investment activity is on the rise.
“Although the news continues to focus on the negative, the economy has bottomed and is on the road to recovery,” said Dr. Linneman. “Historically, the U.S. economy has rebounded in ways that were unimaginable at the time and usually within two years of a recession.”
Is This a Recovery?, NAI Global’s white paper, offers proof that the recession has come to an end and that recovery, however slow, is under way. Dr. Linneman discusses in depth the country’s current economic status, and provides historical evidence from past recessions to support his prediction of a robust recovery by 2012.
This latest white paper follows Overview/Analysis of the Government Stimulus Program, an examination of the federal government’s three major stimulus programs and their impact on the U.S. economy. NAI Global’s white papers and research resources are available for free download at www.naiglobal.com under Publications/Articles & White Papers.
Dr. Linneman is also Professor of Real Estate, Finance and Public Policy at the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania, and Principal, Linneman Associates.”
