The 1878 should be 1787. Quite an error.

Others never offered me any cut in the action of their home purchase on the way up on the price melt-up. Why should I even care if I can find a place affordable to my budget at the cost of others going into foreclosure?

Like any civic-minded, symbiotic local, you find that money changes everything.

"Unrealtors".............LOL I guess that takes care of its prior oxymoron.

Stoopidity is all its guises. Perhaps what you're asking for is civility? A bit more of a challenge certainly, but all the more satisfying for its being so. If anyone can pull it off, Ben's readers can.

Hi there, A. Insane. I've a couple of solar utilities, (gate openers, security for the north forty,) but have always been put off by the battery issue. Has the technology gotten any more efficient for large-scale generation and storage, or do you just let your excess run back into the grid? Who is your manufacturer? Thanks. Oh, and thanks, too for your periodic book recomendations. I'm immersed in "Cadillac Desert" right now and loving it!

Yes, colleges, governments, private citizens all think their prices should remain high and that their "clients" should be indebted for life in order to pay for their goods & services. IMHO, take credit away & we'll see the true price of everything. Since around 1982, cost inflation has skyrocketed, largely due to tremendous amounts of credit being unleashed into our financial system, IMHO.

Wow! Congratulations on the baby! :) As to wishing prices would remain high for friends & family...not a chance!

Spring 2005. I used to copy & paste the post I was replying to. Still do that now. :)

Ditto. I think the next wave of building will be green & custom/semi-custom. We are waiting for the market to drop in order to buy land and build our own house. Definitely will have lots of green technology & have always wondered why homes/lots in So Cal haven't been designed to harvest & recycle water.

Love the "capitalism/socialism" debates. We really need to explore capitalism's shortcomings and how we can best avoid the greed, power-hoarding, market distortions, etc. that are intrinsic to a truly free capitalist society. What does a truly capitalistic or socialistic society really look like? Which is preferable from a social perspective and from a financial perspective?
