No. The real question is "How much are most people EARNING of the GDP pie and how much is EARNED BY capital."

Financial Times

Fed policies exacerbated housing bubbles

They copied the GD playbook by inflating asset prices through decreasing the supply, whether it's bundling foreclosures to private equity firms or enlisting foreign central banks in buying up equities. Regulations restricting the activities of the central bank can be worked around.

What city or cities does the OP see housing shortages?

The 2 cities I spend time in when residing in the states has no shortage. And constant new transplants. Atlanta for example i believe has a surplus and still building because more people move there every day.

Atlanta had one of the tightest residential real estate markets. The supply ratio is rising mainly because sales have fallen off and the seasonal buying period is just starting. So new supply hits the market in March and buyers will come back in. The ratio is still not what one considers a buyer's market.

turning point?

The flipper house next door sold within two months.

Atlanta was probably the largest market for HUD foreclosure sales to private equity. I've read that the rentals typically have a much higher vacancy rate of around 15 percent because a few landlords control much of the market and fix higher rents to account for the high rate of evictions.

Thank you for the detailed response!

This all sounds more like what I've been hearing/experience.

Gov't should not be in the HOUSING BUSINESS. Period.

But since they control the most important price in the world, via the FED (I know it's not technically a Government agency, but the BOD is) the general rate of interest, they profoundly affect derivative money markets.

So .. get rid of the FED, HUD, FHA, Sect.-8, et. al. and then it's all determined by the open market.

Think that's gonna happen soon?

I'm not going to watch it because I know who Milton is. He is a state propagandist that wants more centralized wealth.

There is no depth to his arguments, and his motives are clear as the sun.
