In the Spirit of Sankofa
Where does our outrage meet the challenge of change?
“Sankofa” teaches us that we must go back to our roots in order to move forward. That is, we should reach back and gather the best of what our past has to teach us, so that we can achieve our full potential as we move forward. Whatever we have lost, forgotten, forgone, or been stripped of can be reclaimed, revived, preserved, and perpetuated.

Daren Blomquist, Vice President at RealtyTrac discusses a recent report published by RealtyTrac analyzing housing affordability.
Daren is directly responsible for the creation of the ReatlyTrac's U.S. foreclosure market and sales reports, which are cited by thousands of media outlets nationwide — including all the major news networks and leading publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and USA TODAY. He has been quoted in hundreds of national and local publications and has appeared on national network broadcasts, including CBS, ABC, CNN, CNBC, FOX Business and Bloomberg.
According to the Financial Post, U.S. economic growth slowed sharply in the fourth quarter as weak business spending and a wider trade deficit offset the fastest pace of consumer spending since 2006.
The slowdown, which follows two back-to-back quarters of very strong growth, is likely to be short-lived given the enormous tailwind from lower gasoline prices. Most economists believe fundamentals in the United States are strong enough to cushion the blow on growth from weakening overseas economies.
Even with the moderation in the fourth quarter, growth remained above the 2.5% pace, which is considered to be the economy’s potential. Economists had expected the economy to expand at a 3% rate in the fourth quarter
Joining the broadcast to discuss the economy, bond prices, the Fed and housing is Brent Nyitray, Director of Capital Markets at iServe Residential Lending.
Brent is responsible for managing iServe’s origination pipeline and Ginnie Mae securitizations. Prior to iServe, was an analyst and trader at several hedge funds as well as ran the European Risk Arbitrage trading desk at Bear Stearns. Brent is also the author of The Daily Tearsheet, a blog focused on the economy, financial markets and real estate.
