  • Getting Out of Today's Bear Market [View article]
    What are the chances that lower-middle / middle-middle classes who loses their home or go homeless will be able to crawl back into the middle class in the next 5+ years?

    What are the chances that students who cannot find jobs default on unforgiveable student loans and carry that $100k+ debt load forward w/interest for their foreseeable futures?

  • Stagflation and the Limits of Growth [View article]
    + governments (local,state,and federal) will likely be facing (worse) deficits... i'm not expecting capital gains/estate tax cuts to be renewed.
    + local governments will be in the unique position of increasing home valuations for tax purposes despite drops in real market pricing. certain local governments can only borrow to the extent of a % of real property valuations, so less valuation means less ability to borrow. if local government valuations drop, then the tax rate must proportionally increase to create the same stream of revenues, let alone increase to meet increased program/services costs.

    1) That swath is the same as tornado alley. 2) How is he going to populate natural gas refueling stations across the US?

    re: energy::
    3) The biggest inefficient energy consumption in the USA is housing! Add some insulation to antiquated NE housing stock and see energy consumption go down. Curbing the amazingly inefficient process of craftsmen home construction certainly would help. 2.5 to 4 tons — about 3 to 5 pounds per square foot — of waste is created during the construction of a typical home, consistingly mainly of lumber and manufactured wood products, 35 percent; drywall, 15 percent; masonry materials, 12 percent; and cardboard 10 percent. The remainder is a mix of roofing materials, metals, plaster, plastics, foam, insulation, textiles, glass and packaging. So energy to make, ship, and use for building is then hauled to a landfill and buried.

    ps - seeking alpha desperately needs user moderation and filters so lame political comments can get modded down and filtered out per each user's settings....
