"15 Minutes in the Economy" Podcast: Unemployment, Consumer Credit and the Housing Industry
Wednesday, November 12, 2014 6:50 AM

The Cornerstone Credit Union League's "15 Minutes in the Economy" podcast for the week of Nov. 10 reviews the employment picture, consumer credit, and the housing industry. We look at the modest growth in housing and what this means to the economy in the next four years, the changes in first-time home-ownership rates, and the increases in the rental markets. Finally, we cover concerns on income inequality, multi-generational living environments, and mobile payments technology. You can hear all of this within the span of 15 minutes.

Credit unions may access the podcast from Cornerstone's website. Each week, you'll find updated commentary with a distinct focus on the South Central portion of the U.S. Members will be able to access the streaming audio on Cornerstone’s website at
