HousingPanic's new name

You can see above, I've changed it to "HousingPanic - The Bubble Blog with Attitude"

I think that about sums it up.

If you want just a stream of housing bubble bursting news, I'd suggest browsing the ones I've listed on the right sidebar. If you want a Democrat or Republican blog, there are plenty of those too.

But if you want more of a ruckus, a bubble blog that tries to tie it all together into the complete story, with some independent, biting, hard hitting, no-punches-pulled, no-sacred-cows view on the news and events tied to the bubble, then I'd recommend HP.

As loyal readers know, the issues that seem to go hand in hand with the collapse of the housing bubble are:

1) The credit bubble, misguided central bank policy and reckless lending

2) The US debt, deficit and trade imbalance explosion

3) The corrupt Real Estate Industrial Complex (realtors, brokers, developers, builders, bankers, etc)

4) The incompetence and corruption of our leaders - Democrat and Republican

5) The pure laziness and biased agendas of the mainstream media - Fox News, the Arizona Republic, the New York Times and so so so many more

6) World geopolitical events' impact on the world economy and future economic prospects - the war in Iraq, and soon to be Iran, the war on terrorists, the battle between christians, muslims and jews

7) America's outsourcing of its manufacturing base to China, coupled with its internal labor force to Mexico

8) The shallowness of the American surburban lifestyle - far-flung new homes built in characterless tract communities, gas guzzling cars, the Wal-Mart nation, chain stores, chain restaurants and loss of local character

9) The stock market, gold, the declining dollar, wealth preservation, CEO pay, and the get rich quick mentality versus hard work.

10) Oil, global warming and environmental policy

Keep in mind that this is a blog, not a TV network. Flamers and Realtors cannot and will not drive what content I publish, or my commentary. I'll call it like I see it, period. Then folks are welcome to respond with their opinion. Or leave. I just ask that you keep it clean.

At the end of the day, the reader has a lot more information than they had before, some nuggets to think about, and hopefully some fun.

You sound a little radical on you points, but i admire that you let people post opinions..but i get the feel you rent and dont own?? maybe some of your friends bought ,say, 5 years go and prices doubled and even with a nice correction they still are worth more..

Great site Keith, keep up the good work.

Still not a huge fan of the political discussions though......

Roccman said...

One note - if you are an "anon" - and flame on anything for any reason that I post - you can expect to be called the fucker bitch you are - get a handle - strap on your helmet - and prepare to die!

Bitch'n "anons" are gonna bring this world to its knees b4 oil does.

Sorry in advance to "anons" who get caught in the crossfire - blame the bitches!!!!!!!!!!!

The way I see it is that you have two choices: Either participate in stimulating thought, discussion and research (which results in LEARNING) or just let your "leaders" define and decide the issues. Do we always agree with Keith or among ourselves? No, we do not. But at least we have a desire to learn and to take control (as much as possible) of our own destinies. This blog is one of our classrooms. The anon interupters who obnoxiously indicate that their learning is complete, need to turn on the tube, find American Idol, and just relax. Your work is done.

Re: the 50-year mortgage. The only situation in which I can see that being a reasonable choice is if a person buys a house, knowing he will sell in a few years. Conserves cash on a monthly basis, if that's what a person needs, because monthly payments are lower. But paying it for the whole 50 years? RETARDED.

About Michael Savage:

He An independent-minded individualist, Michael Savage fits no stereotype. He attacks big government and liberal media bias, but champions the environment and animal rights.
Trained as a scientist, he holds Master’s degrees in medical botany and medical anthropology and earned his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in Epidemiology and Nutritional Science. He spent decades searching and saving tropical rainforests.
Savage is also the author of 18 books including three New York Times Best Sellers: "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder", “The Savage Nation” and “The Enemy Within.”
In show, books and speeches, Michael Savage electrifies and galvanizes his audiences. If you’re looking for someone with an opinion-- who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is-- he’s your man.

he said a more appropriate title for BrokeBack Mountain, would be "Bareback Mounting"

Meh. He's an "indpendent" version of Rush and Hannity. He's a vicious asshole, who makes inflammatory remarks to get ratings. No matter how thin you slice it, it's still baloney.

HAW HAW HAW! Gosh, he should really get into stand-up. What a rapier wit! What's next, "Demonrats" and "Repugnicans"?

I've just written an economics paper about the state of the US economy and what I would do if I were Mr. Bernanke.

Looking at the large increase in worldwide housing wealth ($20 trillion) over the past 9 years I desperately began to look further into the causes to find some justification of higher asset prices to determine if another trend was responsible. I came to the revelation that we may be in the middle of a new era. In this new era classical economics doesn't apply because the underlying basis is so different than anything that has ever been experienced by mankind.

At which point I snapped out of my thoughts and recalled that "new era" argument was promoted in March 2000 when people justified an overheated stock market by saying those who didn't believe in it didn't see that we were in a new era and that the old laws of economics no longer applied.

I'm willing to bet the author of that article was bagging groceries by 2002.

Michael Savage is a ding dong. Some of the crap that comes out of his pie hole is worse that the pill popping "They Don't Call me Rush For Nothing Limpbong"

zinger said...

Right on, Keith.

All the "Anon" cry-babies who can't handle the truth and just want to flame great intellectual discussion; go watch the BOOB-TUBE so you can return to your blissful stupor.

The real men on this site have BALLS; and as my wife would say, the real woman on this site have TITS!!!

Real men and woman aren't scared to face the truth and simply deal with it.

"And the truth shall set you free"

HP is a forum for semi-literate ranting! It's A.M. Talk Radio for the wired.

And as for all the bitching about anonymous posting, just scan the thread and you'll see that 90% of the bitching is coming from the NT's (Named Trolls). I'll post anonymously if I choose, and if Keith doesn't like it he can remove that option, and see his blog participation plummet, and choke on HB2's dust. (Come to think of it, however, HP is already choking on HB2's dust.)

Anonymous said...

And don't forget, Keith won't kill the anonymous posting option because then he won't be able to log on as "Anonymous" and post positive, fawning feedback to himself.

Michael Savage is not his real name..
something more like Ariel Rabinowitz or Ira Levive.

mattstyle said...

Albeit not directly real-estate-crash related (moreso economy crash related), let's not forget the looming demise of two monolithic American industries: Hollywood & Pharmaceutical. Why? Hollywood: File sharing/mindless content = no revenue. Big Pharma: proliferation of web has allowed peeps to educated themselves about homeopathic remedies/healhier diets = less revenue. Just a thought :)
