The housing market is locked up. People who have 3% mortgages cannot move except under extreme duress because a new mortgage is 7%. And the price of the average house has doubled. As a result, the payment’s gone up by 40%. People don’t have that. They just don’t have the money. Returning to the Retirement Lifestyle Advocates show this week is Karl Denninger. He and your host, Dennis Tubbergen, discuss the housing market, and Karl offers his forecast for the housing and equities markets in the months to come.
Mr. Karl Denninger is an American technology businessman, finance blogger, author, and political activist, sometimes referred to as a founding member of the Tea Party movement. Mr. Denninger is the author of the book Leverage: How Cheap Money Will Destroy the World. In the book, Denninger presents an inside look at how moneyed and powerful interests debase the dollar through the willful and intentional failure to honestly represent short and long-term mathematical truths that underlie all economic systems.
