Keith Jurow, Ph.D., is a former senior economic writer for the Holt Investment Advisory of Westport, Connecticut, where he researched and wrote semi-monthly articles on important topics of financial interest. During that time, he wrote extensively about different aspects of the housing market. More recently, Keith has been researching and writing about the housing debacle with an eye for stories that are frequently ignored. For example, his article, “Key Role Played by Investors in Creating the Housing Bubble”, provides an in-depth look at how investors and speculators fueled the bubble and helped to bring the housing market to its knees. It was posted on the website of Wall Street analyst Charles Payne -- wallstreetstrategies.com. and was one of the main sources for Fox Business’ feature story about the foreclosure crisis in Chicago. In early March of this year, it was featured as a Special Report on www.realestatechannel.com and was also featured a week later on the homepage of realclearmarkets.com under Research. Since then, four additional articles have been featured on www.realestatechannel.com. Keith is a graduate of Cornell University, received an M.A. and Ph.D. from the New School in Manhattan, and taught on the undergraduate level for 11 years.
