hello. is there anyone that is following the political activities involved in the potential bailout of the housing market? even if they bailout subprime mortgages, they still can't prop up the entire housing market, and prices of homes must still go down. if prices of homes still continued to go up... when would it end? $1M for the average 2,000 sqft 4 bedroom residential? then there are many other debts to unwind, like credit cards and student loans. meanwhile governments have their share to unwind, like healthcare. what must end up happening is that people will reduce consumption by being more efficient and sharing resources. maybe we will see more family members living in the same home or sharing cars, like in other cultures.
