The Real Deal

Gary V. Engelhardt

Gary V. Engelhardt

Gary Engelhardt, professor of economics, notes that a new federal stimulus package would be essential to help prevent more households, particularly renters, from running into difficulties paying their housing costs. "Particularly for renters, the combination of those who missed a payment — or were offered and did not take it — is substantive enough to suggest real risk to their ability to make upcoming payments," says Engelhardt. He was quoted in the Real Deal article, "Landlords lost about $9B in rental payments last quarter: report."

Engelhardt was also quoted in the International Business Times article, "Billions Lost: How The COVID-19 Pandemic Impacted Renters, Mortgage Holders And Student Loan Borrowers."
