Harvard's JCHS is quite simply a mouthpiece for the RE industry.

 Per the other posting the advisory board is comprised of RE companies.

 Secondly, every study they have released has been specifically funded by a RE company.

 The most recent one was Masco.

The Director of the foundation isn't an economist and his highest degree is a Master's in Town Planning.

 In academia, if a problem is defined narrowly enough any conclusion can be supported, including the study sponsored by Masco about how the builders are smarter this time around, they tightened up their supply chains and aren't over-building.
