    What do you mean by 'kill the real estate market to that level'?

    All this stuff really makes working for an hourly wage feel pointless. With the amount income is taxed and the way it is being used- bail out these people and fight a never-ending war- makes you just want to forget it and enjoy the ride into the ground.

  2. Thanks for you comments Brendan 🙂

    By that phrase, I mean that RE prices have to come down significantly, and whlie most of that re-pricing action is going to come from the market, some of it comes from government. Their policies (or lack thereof) will affect how low and how fast RE prices fall.

    In other words, banks have significant amounts of capital locked up in RE, and if prices collapse too much, they won't be able to function (re: collapse). So the first step is to find out just how much capital they need before collapse, and then to target letting prices fall near that level as soon as possible. You have to shock the system, because letting RE prices fester down slowly leads to slower recovery as everyone continues to operate in fear and uncertainty.
