Comment: New Headline: AMERICANS WEALTHIER

(See in situ)


If you believe in a gold standard, what you are really saying is that homes are cheaper now, by a factor of three (including the corrections of the prior post). If I were to believe it I would have to do research but I would guess factors might include: (1) devaluation of home value by increased property taxes (monthly payments include more taxes); (2) illegal labor; (3) prefab construction; (4) still historically cheap home prices; (5) hmmmm someone find a 5th reason!
