  • Pending Home Sales: May 2013 [View article]
    The foreclosure rate is still five times higher than 'normal.' There are a lot of properties out there driving prices down. There is also no national real estate market.

  • The Next Bubble Bursting? [View instapost]
    That and the fact that people have to wait and save before they purchase things. The savers creed is all but dead for some:

    "You get paid interest, you don't pay interest."

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Time For More Volatility? [View article]
    The 'housing market' is such a local phenomenon. Like a checkerboard, good areas coexist alongside the bad. I suspect we're just back to the pre-bubble market levels. But it did take six years . . .

  • Kissing Assets Goodbye [View article]
    Thank you for the well written article. Sometimes you just have to listen to an explanation another time to really appreciate the impact that a natural disaster has on our society. Peoples lives are ruined, and someone actually believes that there is a benefit to it.

    I suppose you are right about sidestepping the mainstream press. I suspect you are also right about the public schools. But, the internet has no citation index, and fact checking comes down to dogged detective work. This is a task at which impulsive people, stabbing buttons on a phone, are remarkably bad.

    The facile opinions, offered by media, any media, are no substitute for solid fact checking and research.

    Thank you for the interesting read(s) Jeff and John. This column really caused me to think about my preconceptions, and I learned more about the nature of scientific thinking and science in general.

    The Higgs boson was in my basement all the time; I just forgot where I had left it.

    No I did not say he beat anyone. He built on their work, as most of them built on others, and some of his work belongs in that pantheon. If you care, read about him, and you will learn he was a victim of the religious and cultural prejudices of that era
