Dr Yun Informs and Entertains

You don’t often see the terms “Rock Star” and “Economist” in the same sentence, but in the case of NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, the two apply. I have an undergrad degree in Econometrics and an MBA, and I am fascinated by the complexities of the national economy, but I’ve never heard anyone explain it all so well as Dr. Yun. The Victorian economist Thomas Carlyle coined the phrase “the dismal science” but hearing NAR’s chief numbers witch-doctor this morning was anything but dismal: it was both informative and entertaining! If you missed his excellent presentation, catch it on the NAR conference website!
