Lol...I've seen your understanding of simple concepts, i.e., look at your response to what I wrote.

It's a little late for such an offer, however, I appreciate it.

Considering that you're not following the logic here (IF you cite...), I will merely take your silence to imply you are for those anti-capitalist incentives.

Keep working that lovely housing market I'm sure you'll find a willing chump (er, I mean buyer) eventually.

So your outright claiming to the public your total ignorance that if someone has less money in their pocket, they have less to spend? You must be an awful buyers representative

I can see you telling a buyer
"Just pay more than asking price for the home, after all, the higher your mortgage payment is, the more money you'll have in the bank"..

Whenever I hear of someone who's involved in real estate use bizarro logic like this, I feel just a little more elated about the housing collapse. But, like all fine things, Schadenfreude must be sipped to be enjoyed.

Good post. Economics is a Science where there are policy measures that promote growth and policy measures that impede growth. (D) party policies impede growth: higher taxes, more unions, bigger Government, more regulation, restricted trade, etc.

Obama is promoting the classic anti-growth policies and I predict that his anti growth policies will lead to a weaker Economy (as they already have thus far).
