He is now the president of t...

In the past if the Fed wanted to spur economic activity they lowered the Fed lending rate. Now that mortgage interest rates are at a historic low (4.5% for a 30 year fixed rate!) the big question is... Why aren't more homes being sold? Great video from CNBC that explains why low rates are not resulting in increasing home sales.
