Congress and Obama made it clearâ¦..âThe crisis will go on and onââ¦â¦. The true cause of the economic crisis has been left unattended by our leaders. - As long as housing prices keep falling and properties being foreclosured uponâ¦â¦â¦â¦there will be turmoil in the banking industry. - Only when housing prices have fallen to their equilibrium levels (equilibrium= what people can pay for them) will banks start to recover slowly and so will the rest of the economy. But Congress and Obama made it clear that they have no intention on helping the housing market to reach its equilibrium point fast enough. We shall only wait until prices fall no moreâ¦â¦â¦â¦.only then we will know a bottom has been reached and a long way to full recovery awaits us.
