When Will Southern California House Prices Bottom? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInquiring minds are wondering about California home prices. My friend "BC" pinged me recently with the following thoughts:

Were the Kuznets Cycle to confirm to past patterns, real median CA house prices will not again return to the '04-'06 levels for another 15-20 yrs., if then given the longer-term demographic profile, normalized lending standards, and likely slower real GDP growth trend (2% vs. 3-3.5%).

Fed Rate Cuts Fail to Halt US House Price Crash / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFeldstein says low Fed rates may not stimulate growth
“Harvard University economist Martin Feldstein, a member of the committee that charts American business cycles, said the Federal Reserve cannot count on low interest rates to buoy economic growth.

“‘Lower interest rates are not going to get us anything more,' said Feldstein, who retired in June as president of the National Bureau of Economic Research. ‘The economy has really shown one sign after another of weakening.'”

US Real Estate Another Bottom in Sight? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Peter_Schiff


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce again, real estate market watchers have pounced on a shred of seemingly positive news to proclaim that the long sought “bottom” is in sight. The routine is becoming extremely stale, but somehow the media never seems to tire of it. This time the “good” news was that the percentage declines in national home prices (according to Case Shiller) in July where not as large as they were in June. Although the report contained many other negative data points, including increased inventories and a spike in foreclosure sales, it was the slowing declines that got spotlight. Talk about grasping at straws.

American Housing Rescue and Foreclosure Prevention Act / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Recently Congress passed the American Housing Rescue and Foreclosure Prevention Act., also known as the Housing Bill. Its passage was lauded by many who are legitimately concerned about foreclosures and the housing market in our country's economy. I was asked how I could vote against a bill to help American homeowners, but I found this bill to have more to do with helping big banks than helping average Americans.

UK Housing Market Freezes as Chancellor Dithers Over Stamp Duty / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe crashing UK housing market is heading for a further deep freeze following speculation that the Chancellor, Alistair Darling is about to suspend the Stamp Duty tax charged on house purchases in an attempt to stabalise the housing market. The few buyers that are in a position to proceed with home purchases are now delaying completing contracts or pulling out altogether and thereby likely to make the collapse in the level of market transactions even worse, thus contributing to the squeeze on sellers, estate agents and other housing market transaction beneficiaries.

US Housing Market Crunching Banks, Earnings and Economy / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHousing, credit and labor … oh my! -“Recent data releases and reports suggest that the consumer will continue to be pressured on all fronts: income (or cash flow), wealth and credit. Consumers can spend using any of these buckets. However, with the labor market continuing to weaken, housing continuing to deteriorate and credit harder to come by, the outlook for spending remains bleak despite recent declines in gasoline prices.

Fed Asks for Blank Check for Fannie and Freddie in Flawed Rescue Plan / Housing-Market / Government Intervention

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fed's emergency rescue plan for the financial markets is hopelessly flawed. It's a scattershot approach that doesn't address the real source of the problem; an unregulated, unsustainable structured finance system that emerged in full-force after 2000 and spawned a shadow banking system that creates trillions of dollars of credit without sufficient capital reserves. This is the heart of the problem and it needs to be debated openly. The present system doesn't work; it's as simple as that. It makes no sense to provide trillions of dollars of taxpayer money to shore up a system that is essentially dysfunctional. It's just throwing money down a rat-hole.

“Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac ‘represent the only functioning secondary mortgage market,' Paulson said in written testimony today to the Senate Banking Committee. ‘Our plan is aimed at supporting the stability of financial markets, not just these two companies.'”

Solution to the Current Crisis- Dissolve Fannie And Freddie / Housing-Market / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Joseph_Brusuelas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Chinese symbol for crisis also can be expressed as an opportunity. The current collapse of confidence in the domestic system of finance and financial leadership provides such a potential moment. The three part proposal to rescue Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has bestowed upon our political and economic leaders the responsibility of ensuring that no one company again becomes too big too fail. The crisis requires more than the avoidance of moral hazards. Rather, the solution to the current financial crises and its legislative response requires that no firm or enterprise ever again be permitted to obtain an implicit guarantee of Federal largesse. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac need to be taken under federal protection, its assets used to cover the risk of the taxpayer bailout and its charter legislatively dissolved.
