All Betters Now

posted on June 1st, 2008 filed under: Real Estate News

We live in interesting times.  Sharply negative real interest rates versus massive indebtedness.  A highly unpopular second-term Republican President versus a Democratic party in disarray and potentially headed for a convention-floor meltdown.  A resilient stock market versus record declines in home values.  Stare decisis versus the new majority on the Supreme Court.  Deflation from globalization versus inflation from basic commodities.   Aging populations versus tax cuts.  Emerging economies versus carbon caps.  The Man versus the internet.

Care to bet on how these forces play out?  Oh wait, I forgot.  Whoever you are, your bet is made.  The only question is where you’ve placed your chips.
