Some folks have pointed out to me that the housing cost calculator that David Leonhardt has in the Upshot section of the NYT looks a lot like the one that CEPR developed years ago to try to warn people about the housing bubble. Yes, it does, and if memory serves me correctly David had asked me about it when he originally designed another version a few years back. Anyhow, glad to see the idea has caught on.
