Elliot Eisenberg Speaker Biography

Elliot Eisenberg, Ph.D. is a nationally acclaimed economist and public speaker specializing in making the arcana and minutia of economics fun, relevant and educational. He earned a B.A. in economics with first class honors from McGill University in Montreal, as well as a Masters and Ph.D. in public administration from Syracuse University. Eisenberg, a former Senior Economist with the National Association of Home Builders in Washington, D.C., is the creator of the multifamily stock index (the first nationally recognized index to track the total return of public firms principally involved in the ownership and management of apartments), the author of more than eighty-five articles, serves on the Expert Advisory Board of Mortgage Market Guide and is a regular consultant to several large real estate professional associations, hedge funds and investment advisory groups. He has spoken to hundreds of business groups and associations, often as keynote speaker. Dr. Eisenberg has been invited to testify before lawmakers and is often asked to comment on proposed legislation. His research and opinions have been featured in Bloomberg, Business Week, Bureau of National Affairs, Forbes, Fortune, and many other publications. He is a regularly featured guest on cable news programs, talk and public radio.

Eisenberg is the Chief Economist for GraphsandLaughs, LLC, an economic consulting firm that serves a variety of clients across the United States. He writes a syndicated column and authors a daily 70-word commentary on the economy. He is a frequent speaker on topics including economic forecasts, the economic impact of industries such as home building and tourism, consequences of government regulation, strategic business development, and other current economic issues.

Elliot has visited 49 of 50 states and 45 of 50 state capitols (ask him which ones he is missing). His interests include keeping the rate of restoration of his 60-year-old house ahead of its rate of deterioration and doting on his daughter. He loves ice hockey and talking economics with crowds large and small.

Elliot Eisenberg loves to speak about economics.  It can be about macroeconomic conditions such as GDP growth, interest rates, unemployment, inflation, and currency movements, or the health of the housing market and real estate, demographics, energy prices, household behavior, wages growth, income inequality, automobile sales and many other topics.  Over the last 10 years, Elliot has spoken to hundreds of groups on a wide variety of economic topics.  Here are descriptions of some of his most popular speeches:

The Economic and Energy Forecast

Attend this entertaining and informative presentation on the economy and energy. Dr. Eisenberg begins this talk by looking at how GDP growth will perform, what interest rates will do, and how wages, labor markets and other economic variables are likely to perform and impact the economy before turning his attention to how energy markets will behave over the next year. Learn how pricing for WTI, Brent and natural gas will perform, how the demand for petroleum products will change, what the expected impact of lifting the export ban on crude oil will do to world and domestic energy prices and international oil markets and the significance of fracking. Special attention will also be devoted to automobile and SUV sales, automotive credit conditions, new car registrations, changing American driving patterns, CAFE requirements, fleet age, renewable energy, gasoline taxes and more.

The Economic Forecast

In this always entertaining and very informative presentation on the economy that frequently begins with a fun and fast moving “top ten list” Dr. Eisenberg discusses how GDP will perform, what interest rates will do, how the labor market will behave, how much firms will spend, how the residential housing sector and real estate in general will perform and how a whole host of other economic variables (including incomes, auto sales, savings rates, energy prices, exports, government spending and so on) are bound to impact the economy this year (no sugar coating), and why!  Learn how to keep the (economic) forest in your view and not lose sight for the (data) trees!

The Economy and the Housing Market

This talk begins by reviewing the health of the national economy and the national housing market so as to better put into context local economic conditions.  Dr. Eisenberg first discusses GDP, inflation, employment, wages, interest rates and then moves on to housing prices, mortgage rates, new home construction, housing affordability, inventories, declining home ownership rates, demographics, and more.  Dr. Eisenberg then turns his attention to the condition of both the local and state economy and housing market and how they compare to nearby states and cities in terms of unemployment, employment growth, personal income, housing starts, housing prices and more.

The Unintended Consequences of Government Regulation

This absolutely hilarious presentation teaches audience members why, government intervention is generally a bad idea.  It may be a new CFPB requirement, a new building code requirement, higher capital levels for financial institutions, a rise in the minimum wage, or something completely different.  Whatever it is, this talk shows, using simple economics, how these regulations raise the price of whatever it is being regulated, decrease its supply, raise the price of alternatives, and moreover cause all kinds of negative unintended consequences which frequently hurt the very people the law is trying to help.  By the end, the audience understands what it takes to make better regulations that don’t create unintended consequences.

Economic Impact of Home Building

This talk shows how much income, how many jobs and how much tax revenue is produced by building new homes in your community.  Elliot focuses on the effect of the construction activity, the revenue multiplier that occurs when income earned during construction is spent in the local economy, and the ongoing impact that results from new homes becoming occupied by residents who pay taxes and buy locally produced goods and services.  He then compares the benefits of new construction to the one-time and ongoing costs new construction imposes on the community to see if new homes pay their economic way.

Dr. Eisenberg returned for a second year of being our annual event keynote speaker. His talk was very helpful in level setting for our network for the next year.

March 4, 2022

Dr. Eisenberg’s talk to our 200 attendees started about 15 minutes late because of the speakers ahead of him. To show how much he held the attention of our moving and storage company (small business) owners, not a single person left early, even though we went over time. Several attendees stayed behind, as well, to approach Dr. Eisenberg with questions. As the event planner, I’ve received many compliments on his talk, and my boss has already mentioned having Dr. Eisenberg again at a future conference. Would definitely recommend for any size audience and any group…the economy is relevant to anyone!
