Houses are an asset too. If QE has pushed up stocks, why wouldn't we expect a knock-on effect in housing? The US is probably just about as bad as China with real estate speculation now. I wonder if there is any data on this.
Housing-led recovery indeed. Ben prints money, it filters into buying houses, construction goes up, creating jobs... no, this can't end badly at all.

There are a number of important differences between the Bush-era housing bubble and today. 1) Today, housing sector debt is falling. Households are still de-leveraging. 2) Cash flows from rent didn't justify the prices of the Bush-era housing market. Today, cash flows from rent more than justify housing prices.
