In order to provide you with more information and broader context on the local real estate market, we’ve added and plan to expand a new “Economic Reports” library inside REsearch.
For starters, you will find recent presentations provided by Paul Brewbaker, perhaps Hawaii’s most renown and respected economist. His extensive background in economic research and financial risk analytics powered a 25 year career with Bank of Hawaii, where he started in the International Banking Division as a student in 1981, and served most recently as Chief Economist. He has also played prominent roles in a number of key organizations, including the Hawaii Council on Revenues, the Hawaii and American Economic Associations, and the National Association for Business Economics.
Brewbaker received his bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and his doctorate from the University of Hawaii. Now heading TZ Economics, his own independent consultancy, he is still a sought-after expert on local, national, and even global business.
Hawaii Information Service has provided specialized economic reports and raw data to Brewbaker for years, and he has been gracious in acknowledging our ongoing partnership. Now, we are pleased to be able to begin building a library of his economic presentations and analysis in REsearch.
To check out the latest available reports from Paul Brewbaker and other sources, log into REsearch and choose “Economic Reports” from the “Market” menu. We are working on building an archive of historical reports as well. Here are the two current featured reports (click through for the PDFs):
