. Commercial real estate prices and rental rates suffered substantial declines in the past year (Newsweek, July, 2009).

Even with such large declines, annual lease rates in Asia were still higher than in many cities in Europe and the United States. Annual lease rates for a sample of 30 commercial properties in Hong Kong showed an average of $1114 per square meter with a standard deviation of $230. Annual lease rates for a sample of 40 commercial properties in Paris showed an average lease rate of $989 per square meter with a standard deviation of $195.
