Concerning similarities today to the 1930s and 2006 with Economic Stagflation

economic stagflationWe have looked at lots of interesting data this week. Some good, some not so good. Is the optimism and good vibes that are implied by the latest employment numbers misplaced?

We take a look at some concerning parallels between today and to the times just before two major economic downturns – the great depression and housing collapse. It is kind of creepy but at least it leaves us with somethings to keep an eye on so that we might just be able to more easily see it coming. In short, we seem to be heading for economic stagflation – not a good place to be.

It has been a long time since the employment numbers looked this good

unemployment numbersFor years now we have been talking about the employment numbers. Plenty of games have been played over the years with how they are calculated. Plus, we have been finding that the kind of jobs being created are not what we would hope for. Well, the most recent employment numbers are actually telling an encouraging story – and I could not be happier to be able to finally share a happy opinion when it comes to employment! After all, if you want a healthy real estate market, one of the things you need to start with is a good employment market.

We will also talk about the odds of the Fed doing a rate hike in March.  Not all the news is entirely good. We have some numbers on the average size of debt being taken on and some other lending trends that are also likely to make things worse before they make it better.

More data today on how we might be remaking the housing bubble

housing bubbleMore stories today that all seem to relate to one another. They fit together with past topics we have covered that leave me wondering what is going on with how much debt is being willingly and even happily taken on by consumers – and it looks like folks are willing to take on lots more and potentially feed a housing/debt bubble. As I have said before, it feels just a little bit too familiar. So are we resurrecting the housing bubble that kicked us around so horribly in 2007? Sadly, it looks like we might. Lets look at the latest numbers and see where we are.

Alternative Credit Scores – That Ignore Credit

Measuring credit by not measuring it Just when we thought the crazy train could not pick up any more speed – Congress starts pushing the idea that Fannie and Freddie should change the model they use to evaluate the credit worthiness of borrowers. Of course, when you read what you want to do, …

Magnet States – State to state migration means changes in housing!

magnet statesWelcome to it folks. Today we take a look at magnet states – the ranking of states in terms of folks moving in and out. We will review the most moved to states and the least moved to – meaning they are seeing more people leaving than coming. Plus, we will spend some time discussing the states that had the biggest changes in their ranking on this list, since that might just suggest a change in the market in that state.
