linkages to my research in health economics and urban economics.
I am also now working
in health economics education and I presented my work at the July 2014 jointiHEA/ECHE meetings in Dublin, the July 2015 iHEA meetings in Milano, and the
June 2016 ASHEcon meetings in Philadelphia. We
achieved a very successful a full day session at the July 2017 iHEA meetingsin Boston, and the 2018 ASHEcon
meetings in Atlanta in June 2018. We will be conducting a
pre-conference session on active learning methods at the 2019 iHEA meetings in Basel, Switzerland.
I was also invited
to join the American Economic Association’s Committee on Economic Education for
a three-year term starting in January 2019.

Goodman, Allen C. and Brent C. Smith, “Residential Mortgage Default: Theory
Works and So does Policy,” Using a national loan level data set we examine
loan default as explained by local demographic characteristics and state
level legislation that regulates foreclosure procedures and predatory
lending, using a hierarchical linear model. When controlling for loan
and local conditions, we observe significant variation in the default
rate across states, with lower default levels in states with higher
temporal and financial costs to lenders. State level legislative
influences provide a foundation for discussion of national level policy
that further regulates predatory lending and financial institution
foreclosure activities. “Hierarchical
Modeling of Residential Default: Does State Level Foreclosure and
Predatory Lending Legislation Limit Bad Loans?” Journal of Housing Economics, 19 (2010): 280-294.
