Climate Change And The Housing market
"We're going deep on the housing market. So let me ask you when you bought your house out there in Berkeley. Were you thinking about natural disaster risks. Well yes primarily earthquake risk. Yeah I mean you know if you're in if you're northern California then a among basically the entire west coast you're terrified water quakes. I also terrified earthquakes so I was thinking about that. I did I looked at houses in some other places where I was worried about. Things like floods and sea level rise But I'm a little further from the water. So I'm I should be safe from that barring some horrible horrible climate change outcome but You know obviously now. Wildfires are irrelevant factor here to what's the market it for earthquake insurance like don't get me started on the market for. It's it's a horrible you. It's incredibly expensive in the coverage which is really bad. There's like a California State Program called the California Earthquake Authority which like Kinda backs it but you have to get it to your local lender and Or your insurer and your insurers don't all cover it it's it's a mess we won't go there. I live in East Boston. And I'm surrounded by water and so the first thing I did when we were thinking about buying a house out here was does look up fema flood maps and do our research on flooding We're up on a hill so turns out according to the FEMA maps were in pretty good shape over a hundred year period of time But guess what I found other. Those maps are not so good the I would say the primary learning learning for me from all this Learning that I've been doing around. Climate risk is that FEMA flood maps or not great. Yes it's a real problem and that is part of what we're GONNA be talking about in this show I I watch tell you that I feel pretty good still I mean we are way up on a hill We're we're kind of surrounded by one side on a river. We've got the airport on one side so there's really not a lot of flooding risk for us like there is in other parts of East Boston or just throughout Boston. Really in fact. Mild down the street at the edge of Boston harbor on our side in East Boston through developing these is new condo buildings. He super expensive units that. Sit Right in these special flood hazard areas like even in the FEMA maps that are out out of day. These buildings buildings are in flood hazard areas. 'em He boggles the mind how to these things. Keep getting bill. How are they insured? Who is backing these these buildings and so this week? We are exploring the financial risk of this kind of development and our guest co-authored really deep and important study quantifying the problem in the US housing market and identifying. How banks are shifting? That risk took us the taxpayers our guest is named a meanwhile Assad. He's a professor of applied economics at the Graduate School of business at Hec Montreal Montreal. He joined us from his Montreal office. And show you doug this piece of research up you pass it over to me. And then the subsequent New York Times article that came amount summarizing the research. What compelled you about it? Well I think in my ongoing obsession around understanding climate risk in the ways is that it's playing out. I think one of the things that I'm finding to be interesting and terrifying Is basically like I think. Climate change and the risk of climate. Change is going to cause all these little distortions in our economy. There's just going to be so much of our economy is driven by weather and natural natural disaster and temperature all this different stuff and so I think you could almost look till like any section of the economy apply climate risk lens to it and then say this is GonNa GonNa get. This is going to turn weird. You know in one way or another and one of the areas that I think we're starting to see that play out right now as evidenced by means research is is in the mortgage market and obviously that one carries a particular weight in the United States. Because it was largely the cause of our last financial financial disaster and in fact the players who are involved in that less financial disaster particularly Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac which are you know sort of the US tax payers ars burying the burden of a bunch of mortgages. They appear to be involved This time as well in sort of an inability to price in a risk USC which is basically what happened in financial disaster. Now it may not be the same order of magnitude of a risk that we saw last time around. But it's a good example to to me of one of the ways in which climate change is just going to start to cause these strange little distortions in our economy right so the market for coastal mortgages in the US is worth sixty billion dollars or more per year depending on you know The real estate market and housing construction etc and and the striking thing about this research and other similar findings is that it's not confined just to a small number of coastal properties if you have have significant default rates it can reverberate through communities and potentially the broader housing market and so a lot of people are asking at least in the popular press when they're summarizing this research. Could this be a repeat of the two thousand seventeen thousand eight housing market collapse. That caused a financial crisis. I think the answer is at this point. No Oh because we're talking about a specific slice of the housing market at least when it comes to coastal properties but still there is this reverberation that can happen through these communities. It's not just like a bunch of select houses that are at risk it can actually have a ripple effect yeah. I don't think we know entirely yet. I think you know a means research which which I talked to him about is new and there isn't a whole lot of research on this yet so I think it remains to be determined. Exactly how big the the risk is but it is true not sort of fear monger here. I think it is true that like the numbers that you're talking about the potential losses to the American tax payer. As a result of this you know as it stands today air in the billions probably But maybe not yet at the level of the financial crisis in two thousand seventeen thousand eight which was you know couple orders of magnitude larger than and so. We should overstate it at the same time. This is the beginning right. And we just don't know where this is going to go and I think it's important to this Shaina light on all these little market distortions caused by climate change because that's the only way that we're going to actually adjust as a result and this to me the whole thing about this series stories that we've been doing on climate risk which is step one is understand the risk but then step two is do something about it. Price it in Insure against got it. Plan around it something And so you know we just gotTa make sure that we're doing that whether we are individual citizens or homeowners whether we are business businesspeople or whether we are policymakers even the federal government and so this is just another place where that's needed you guys really bring the walk in this interview. Yeah I mean look. Give me an academic academic paper and let me run. And you've made a huge mistake but no I mean this is really interesting research. And and the the challenge is that it's not it's not easy to say like like with the impacts of climate change on the mortgage market right now that that's hard to measure and so what I mean and his colleagues who wrote the paper figured out was a pretty clever way to try to get it this question which has to do with the relationship between private lenders and Fannie and Freddie and the rules that govern Fannie and Freddie so it's sort of inherently a a little bit wonky but I always think it's really interesting great. Well let's hear your conversation with a meanwhile Saad who's a professor of applied economics at the Graduate Business School. HEC G C Montreal. The study that you're talking about it's called mortgage finance in the face of rising climate risk. Amin thanks so much for being here. Thank thank you so much for your invitation. It's a pleasure. I'm really excited to chat with you about this research that you conducted recently but I think we should start by offering a little bit of context setting for folks who are not deeply embedded in the mortgage market and as fascinated by. Perhaps as you are so what. What is the role of Fannie and Freddie in this market very briefly and what's the sort of what are the restrictions that Fannie and Freddie have that private lenders do not right so prior to the existence of the creation of Fannie and Freddie the banks that were giving mortgages which is needed to have deposits matching deposits of customers on their balance sheet to extend mortgages Now Fannie and Freddie ready to change that that that mechanism because they allowed the banks to sell their mortgages to Fannie and Freddie and shield the commercial banks from The risk of default of households when when households default on their mortgages the lenders are not exposed to the default risk and it provides liquidity to The commercial banks into non-bank lenders so that they can extend many more mortgages than the amount of deposits that they have on their balance sheet and so this process of securitisation that Finian and Freddie enable is allowing lenders to extend many more mortgages than it would otherwise they were created during during the new deal so we're talking about FDR's administration And have been central to enabling households American households to be homeowners so okay so a mortgage lender has sort of two options are broadly. Speaking mortgage lender has two options with alone. They can hold it on their balance sheet or they can offload it to fannie or Freddie and securitise it and so the sort of crux of what the the the question you've been asking is can we see any impact from climate change or specifically from natural disasters on that decision right which mortgages to originate that a lender can offload in which mortgages in a lender originating. Hold yeah absolutely so there's being there was a a major academic work in Two thousand eight a right. After the financial crisis that said that commercial banks were selling their their bad loans to the government sponsored enterprises Fannie and Freddie That word by that worked by Ben Keys at Warton Really showed that The lenders were offloading The uninsurable On observable bad risk onto the balance sheets of Fannie and Freddie now when When we thought about this securitisation process we would we? We also thought that they would offload their bad climate risk That it is if Fannie and Freddie are not cautious in the kinds of mortgages that are purchasing They're purchasing from the commercial lenders commercial lenders that have of a branch network on the ground have loan officers They know The areas in which they're extending loans. Well they may be able all to observe the climate risk of little abellard better than Fannie and Freddie and And then when we we worked more and more on the research search we realized that Fannie and Freddie really didn't have a proper mechanic SOM to assess the sort of climate risk of they were purchasing from the commercial lenders We realized that they were using maps. That were outdated We realized that Fannie and Freddie were not
