Live chat: Economist Anirban Basu
Baltimore economist Anirban Basu will take your questions in a live chat at 9 a.m. Sept. 18. Got a query about the housing market, the economy or any related topic? He's got answers.
You can submit your questions that day -- two weeks from Friday. But I encourage you to ask 'em now by commenting below, lowering my stress level by ensuring that we can start the chat with a bang rather than with chirping-cricket noises.
Here's a quick bio on Basu:
He's chairman and chief executive of Sage Policy Group Inc., an economic and policy consulting firm in Baltimore. His clients include developers, bankers, brokerage houses, energy suppliers and law firms, and he's written economic development strategies for government agencies and nonprofits.
In addition to economic development, he focuses on health economics and the economics of education. And he's a regular speaker at the Home Builders Association of Maryland's construction-forecast conferences.
