This is the place where economics becomes fun.
Those words are straight from Greg Heym, Chief Economist at Brown Harris Stevens and the voice behind a new twice-a-week newsletter called The Line. In a field that’s not exactly known for its humor or simplicity, Greg offers a little bit of levity and a lot of helpful, straightforward information.
Whether you’re involved in real estate or you just want to know what’s happening with the economy, The Line has you covered. From the latest market news to stock updates and tech information, the newsletter tackles the topics you’re after and presents them in an easy-to-understand, digestible way.
If you’re curious about how the Federal Reserve’s latest policy change will affect you, or you’re wondering whether it’s a good time to buy or sell a home, or you need some insight on why the stock market is behaving the way it is, The Line is for you. According to Greg, this newsletter is for “anyone who wants to stay informed but not be bored.”
Here’s what you can expect:
“I say if you can add 1.8 million jobs at a time when virus cases are surging and states are rolling back openings, you should party like it’s 1999.”
“The S&P 500 index closed at 3,389.78 on Tuesday, a record price that erases all its coronavirus-fueled losses…Apologies to LL Cool J, but you can call that a comeback.”
“Don’t bet against New York City, you’re likely to lose even more often than the Knicks!”
Greg, who’s on a mission “to break the stereotype that economists have to be dull,” is widely recognized as an industry expert. He was previously Vice President and Chief Economist for The Real Estate Board of New York, as well as an Economist for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. In short, he knows what he’s talking about.
