YES I DO BC he thought - and im not joking that the market should move to 50,000 because of inflation

I would call that sensationalism, and if you want to know why he is rich LOOK TO JIM SOROS and HIS NEW YORK MONEY in the EARLY 70's... google it..

You brought up an excellent point, but you will have to do the research from here on Jim Rodgers

It takes about 6-8 years for a president's decisions to take affect.

George W Bush Jr. bankrupted the two companies his father gave him and ran off with the pensions of the workers.

This individual couldn't manage the two companies his rich daddy gave him as well as a entire country.

We are seeing, feeling the results of this moron's decisions at the moment.

the tax deduction on interest on a home loan does not make up for the difference I believe ( is that what you are speaking about)?

while it makes a diff., you cannot argue with NOT HAVING TO PAY A BANK EVERY MONTH A CERTAIN AMT

This is psychological as well of course, but you seem smart enough where you dont need to be told that

You seem rational

Let me ask you

You pay 1200 straight in cash EVERY MONTH - no skipping of course etc.

Now you rent for 900

Where does your disposable income go?



You already know that answer - but I would argue that spending any amt. in this econ. is beneficial no matter where it goes, its still income being disposed that will be displayed on some corp.'s balance sheet

btw - TOUCHE FOR BRINGING SOMETHING NEW TO THE TABLE

Nice attempt but you are keeping ONE very huge factor out of the equation. Unfortunately I'm on only a 10 minute break so I cannot read through the many posts to see if this very important point has been made.

#3: You are making a HUGE assumption here.

The assumption that the parents are being foreclosed on still have their normal income stream. Thus having extra money to spend on the things the drive an economy.

Well my friend. You are right and also VERY wrong in that assumption. For the many millions that actually have one of the hopefully two bread winners in a family lose their job they subsequently have less cash to spend because of that loss. In quite a few cases it is both bread winners losing their jobs thus causing a MASSIVE hole in their finances.

So, although your thoughts are based on a sound process under ideal circumstances, it has some pretty major flaws.

Interesting view, but you are looking at it from the wrong frame of mind.

The market will take care of these houses, and the WEAK THAT BOUGHT A HOUSE THEY CANNOT AFFORD, will be forced to rent or purchase something cheaper. Which leads to.......-->

You will witness the MARKET EQUILIBRIUM THEORY at its finest, that I love for the stock market, get applied to housing here shortly.

So in essense, you are correct, but you are not seeing the "rest of the picture". These houses will come down to a EQUILIBRIUM PRICE that can be afforded once again.. BUY LOW SELL HIGH = works for the stock market and real estate.

[edit on 29-11-2009 by GreenBicMan]


No,no,ummm...no again.
These houses that are being foreclosed on are now a loss capital on the banks books. The problem with your theory is that these people who will "keep" spending is not all of them have the means to keep spending. You see yes there are some people who just bite off more than they could chew with ARM's and such and still hold a job that can put them into a rental property. But that doesn't cover the thousands who LOST jobs who scratch to make it and have lost or losing their homes. You seem to think all these people who just lost their homes are going to keep right on spending money they don't have and in some cases your right but that doesn't make the banks books look any better to the chair holders to be sitting on houses they can't sell in a market. And if I'm not mistaken if a bank records mortage losses on property's they didn't have the capital to cover those properties can't be used as a collateral means to use as holding capital to write loans on. I'm not in banking maybe someone can clear that up. But it is foolish to think just cause people are spending money on consumer items that that is going to turn the market around. See what alot of people don't even know is that there is another bubble about to bust one that isn't being covered in the media.

And that is the loans that were wrote with a 5-7 year progression interest rate / or a dormate rate as some call it. These are home that were purchased with a low intro of 1% that was locked in for 5-7 years. Now Most of these loans were written in like 04'-05'-06' Most in 05' I think but these are about to come out of there intro rate and mature to prime. Now the kicker is that if you have one of these loans and your credit score is good then your prime mature rate is market 4.8-5.2% but if your high risk then your mature is sub-prime rate. See these aren't a traditional ARM they are a locked in rate for 5-7 years they are loans designed for contractors and builders and the banks sold them to consumers to help fill the empty housing market. So these are going to mature in 24ish days and in another 30 we will se a second wave of crashes on banks and holding companies. Your theory is wishful but just not a plyable one in this case.

I understand brother

thats why I am using a variable when calculating this

I just chose .75, in reality I have no idea

But you know where I am coming from I think, correct?

I think you've found the answer to the economic recovery. What we need to do is for everyone to file bankruptcy --- preferrably on the same day. That will free-up enormous amounts of cash which we can all then spend at WalMart and McDonald's thereby creating jobs and stimulating the economy into recovery.

Who could have guessed the answer was this simple?

If every one filed for bankruptcy, wouldn't that make it harder for people to get future credit. Will all this money spent at WalMart and McDonalds be paid in cash?

Actually, it's really not nearly as hard to bounce back from bankruptcy as it once was. Plus, I think that there was some sarcasm in that post.

Now you're getting the idea jtma. Problem is that with the 05? change to the bankruptcy code, individuals cannot discharge debt as they were able to in the past as all chapter 7 fillings are considered presumptively abusive, and a large amount of people are pushed into a Chapter 13 where they must make payments for i think 3 years. Corporate interests can still do it, so don't worry, our elected representatives have taken care of their sugar daddies.

This thread is better than I thought it would be. GBM's thesis about foreclosures being good for the economy by giving the consumer some money to spend is spot on. SO if you are underwater on your home and the bank won't restructure, stop paying till they force you out. Not only will you free up alot of cash flow not paying the mortgage, in many areas banks are in no hurry to foreclose, and you could concievably live free for quite a while. I've heard of people in bubble states that stopped paying and were in the home 6-12 months before being forced to move. Wanna extend that a little while longer? Right before your final day to move file for BK this stops any collections, garnishments, and foreclosures until the BK works it's way through the courts.

And when some holier than thou busybody talks about "moral responsibillity", "honoring contracts", or "moral hazard" flip em the finger and say "Hey, me not paying my mortgage and spending that money is a good thing, Greenbicman says so."
