    This is the sign of a bubble, not a crisis. There’s a difference.

    Overall the population of the U.S. isn’t increasing as it did. There are simple ways to let air out of the bubble, using the tax system. We should also be encouraging more owner-occupied housing, which leads to safer, more stable neighborhoods.Report
