The final installment of a series of working papers produced by the University of Southern California (USC), in partnership with Fannie Mae, looks at the decade-spanning 10-point plunge in the homeownership rate of young Americans.

But the jury’s out about owning stock in Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway: it has committed $1.5 billion to a credit facility for Canada’s Home Capital Group Inc. “The investment in Home Capital , which has acknowledged responsibility for mortgage fraud, also lets Berkshire deploy a small piece of its $96.5 billion...(read more)
