"It appears the recent declines in housing wealth may be reducing consumer spending between $200 billion and $375 billion per year," he said. "That reduction corresponds to lower living standards for many Americans."

The situation in 2002-2007 was necessary to mask the vast transfer of income upward from the middle class to the 1%.

The middle class didn't care so much about that transfer as long as it could borrow to maintain its standard of living.

1% sucked money from middle class to the max through extended hours of labor, outsourcings, debts and bail-outs. Now they don’t have to care what will happen here anymore, because they have enough money to invest in other developing countries and suck them too. Yet, pay only 15% tax here.

He estimates the decline in home prices has resulted in more than $7 trillion in lost household wealth.

It is a wealth was NOT there to start with.

It is just like the 1.5+ trillion dollars he printed last year.
Now he is printing and giving to Europe.

This is sick.
