Written by Gary

The "New Housing Crisis" - Not Enough Rental Homes?

Submitted by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com,

The has been a rash of articles as of late suggesting there is a "new housing crisis" afoot. The issue this time, as it is suggested, is there is a "shortage" of homes for all the people that are wanting to buy homes causing prices to skyrocket out of reach. To wit:

"It hasn't been this tough to be in the housing market since the financial crisis.

To recap the problem, the supply of housing, especially in the affordable entry-level segment, is not keeping up with huge demand from first-time buyers and existing homeowners looking to upgrade."

It is true there is a lack of supply of homes currently on the market. However, the lack of supply is not being caused by a flood of millennial couples wanting to "buy" homes, but rather "all cash" buyers, particularly foreign buyers, snapping up properties for investment purposes.

Here is the evidence.

At The Margin

The problem with all of the analysis each month on the transactional side of housing is it only represents what is happening at the "margin." The issue at hand, with respect to housing, is more than just the transactional side of the equation which ...

"The System Has No Chance Of Regaining Stability"

Submitted by Raul Ilargi Meijer via The Automatic Earth blog,

John McDonnell, UK Shadow Chancellor of the Treasury (at least it sounds important) appealed to his -Labour- party on Sunday morning TV to "stop trying to destroy the party", and of course I'm thinking NO, please don't stop, keep at it, it's so much fun. When you watch a building collapse, you want it to go all the way, not stop somewhere in the middle and get patched up with band-aids.

It's alright, let it crumble, it's had its day. And if it's any consolation, you're not alone. Nor is that some freak coincidence. 'Labour'-like parties (the 'formerly left') all over the world are disintegrating. Which is no surprise; they haven't represented laborers for decades. They've become the left wing -and even that mostly in name only- of a monotone bland centrist political blob.

The other 'half' of that blob, the 'conservative' side, is disintegrating just as rapidly, as evidenced by the rise of Trump and a motley crew of Boris Johnson ilk.

The spontaneous self-immolation of the US Democratic Party mirrors that of the British Labour Party, but admittedly, it has even more entertainment value. America does entertainment like nobody else can.

In both cases, we see entire parties turn on their own candidates, it truly is a sight to behold. Especially since people like Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn are the only ones who do have a tangible connection to the people left that they represent.

One might even say Donald Trump falls in that category too, though in a slightly different way. The others, whether they are from the supposed left or right -and it really makes no difference anymo ...
