November 3, 2011-Houston-

Global, national and regional economic news has been volatile.  How has Houston’s economy and real estate market been affected? 

The University of Houston and Ted C. Jones, chief economist for Stewart Title, unscramble the numbers and headlines in the University of Houston Institute for Regional Forecasting’s biannual symposium titled, “Houston: the Teflon® Economy and Real Estate Markets—A Few Scratches, But the Bad Stuff is Not Sticking and We Keep on Cooking.”

The event is planned for Tuesday, Nov. 8 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Houston. Registration begins at     11 a.m.  The program gets under way just after lunch, which begins at 11:30 a.m.

“There is good news for Houston and Texas, which have resumed robust job growth unlike much of the U.S.,” Jones said.

Jones’ analysis will include predictions on oil prices in light of global and national economic recoveries, Houston homeowners versus renters, and winners and losers in Houston’s job performance.  

Jones is available for media interviews before the event.  Please contact Marisa Ramirez 713-295-0712 or mrcannon@uh.edu to arrange a time.
