THE ISSAM FARES INSTITUTE FOR PUBLIC POLICY AND INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
This talk addressed Beirut's current real estate bubble, its evolution and causes, and its effects on the rest of the Lebanese economy, as well as environment. Unusually excessive cash flow from overseas pre-2010, due to the global credit crisis and high oil prices, caused a surplus of cash which the country could not easily absorb using traditional modes. This led to massive speculation and reallocation of capital, the consequences of which we still feel today.
