Is buying a house a better investment than buying stock? - Vox

Nick Timiraos: "Census report on direction of new home sales is mostly at odds with recent builder commentary. Someone is going to have to revise something"

Wow...just wow....

I would recommend that you don't piss them off.

I've always stated I hated renting. Kids, animals, long-term fruit trees... you really need a home base.

When was the last time you saw a kid on a suburban street?

Most buildings are animal-friendly...especially if they want to be marketable.

Long-term fruit trees? That's a hobby. No money-savings there.


The housing market slowly returning to normal:

"Jumbo loans—those with balances above $417,000—actually have lower average interest rates today than conforming loans. Usually the inverse is true."

Mortgage activity drops, but average loan size at record

Told ja!


"I'm confident a more complicated and thorough model would produce the opposite result over the period in question."

You would hope. Because if not, your narrative over the past 8 years would be at serious risk. 

And a quotable from the most quoted housing oracle:

"Shiller said that investing in housing was a “fad” and not a great historical investment."

The closing of Abu Ghraib and the U.S. failure in Iraq -

From the article:

"The Iraqi government abandoned the prison because Iraq itself is unraveling. Of course, it is Iraqis rather than Americans who must deal with the consequences. Even so, those consequences ought to give pause to advocates of U.S. intervention in places such as Syria or Ukraine. To those who will listen, the lessons of Abu Ghraib are unmistakable."

Funny how "for the children" has a different meaning for his types when it comes to their own children.

The decline of manufacturing | FRED Blog

From the article:

"Many of the largest US corporations continue to shift their production facilities overseas. It is important to understand why the United States is not perceived to be an attractive base for their production."

Because Americans want cheap.

When you have clowns who spend 3 days scouring the internet for a 500 dollar washer/dry set then you can understand why.


Wait...people have money to pay taxes????

I thought that everyone was flat broke and drinking gutter water to survive....I know this....I read the HCN.

IIRC it's actually fungicide. I think that's part of the reason that the strawberries from the San Joaquin Valley (Exeter, Porterville, and all that) seem better to me than the ones from Oxnard.

Strawberries are pesticide/fungicide intensive.

Strawberry yield per acre is much higher here than in the rest of the world.

And for the most part they suck. The varietals that are grown are for size not taste.
