    You are talking about one little corner of the world. Four bedroom homes go for around $220K where I live and the unemployment rate is below national average. I am looking at homes in the Wilmington NC area and places not far from the beach can be had at the same price.

    If one bought when Bush took office and then sold when Obama took office, he/she could forget about retirement.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Is The Fed Behind The Curve? [View article]
    From someone who lived through the 70's and 80's, 2% inflation is a real laugher. I bought my first house at a 13% interest rate.

    High,gas prices caused the mortgage crisis? Stupid loans caused the crisis. Also, a lot of people use natural gas to heat with, which is cheap.

  • U.S. household wealth increases [View news story]
    Exactly. Once the kids moved out of the house and I had more cash - my personal wealth grew very quickly. You can't save when essential expenses are even with salary.

  • Initial Jobless Claims declines by 27K [View news story]
    Thanks for the link. There are many unskilled workers whose jobs are quite physical that simply cannot work anymore.

    It would be nice to have a few weeks under 300K in a row.

    The growing inequity in pay is quite bothersome. Hopefully, those who control the power (and wages) will see the light.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Will Sluggish Housing Growth Derail The Economy? [View article]
    Nothing new, really:

    “Don’t Know Much About History”: The New York Times 1943 Survey of U.S. History and the Controversy It Generated

    by Anne-Lise Halvorsen — 2012

    Background/Context: Educators, parents, politicians, and the media often complain that young people know little history and compare them unfavorably to better-educated, earlier generations. However, the charge is exaggerated. Young people have performed poorly on history tests for decades. Students’ poor scores on one test in particular, the focus of this study, caught the nation’s attention: the New York Times 1943 survey of college freshmen’s history knowledge.

    S&P was down 5.9% that August, but up 12.8% for the year. I'm a lazy investor, so I can easily live with that.
