What a pity. Years ago, it was such a pleasure to pop in here to read all the stories of the real estate collapse. Then, as the market forces began to shift, it began to fall apart.

It was nice while it lasted.

aka millenials aka the boomer echo.

QE and our increasing Gini (more and more money bidding up prices and thus lowering yields), massive imports and trade surplus (which is deflationary as it takes our money away and gives us goods in return) and the general underemployment (suppressing wage increases) have kept inflation anchored.

There's always something falling apart in this world. Today it's Russia, Greece, and of course the old time perennial - Middle East.
