Original post made on Jun 13, 2013

Existing-home sales across the country rose in April but remained below underlying demand because of limited inventory and tight credit, according to the National Association of Realtors.

The supposedly calamitous flight from California has been greatly exaggerated.

Then move to Texas and stock up on guns and gold bricks. Want me to buy your Pleasanton home so you can escape this supposed catastrophe? My business is booming, the real estate and stock markets are heating up, and we are setting up for a good ol' fashion boom.

I continue to stand by my predictions from a year ago. So far, things are going precisely as I predicted back then. The pension problem is soon to be a distant memory, thanks to rising asset prices and the well-balanced reforms implemented by our local leaders and governor.

good for you b, but to me it looks like some more good ol' fashion manipulation. Any talk of the Fed reducing the $85B monthly buying spree sends my assets lower. JS

The Fed has been very explicit that they're planning to print money until unemployment is at 6.5% or lower. By then, we are firmly on the way.

There's more than enough going on in the real economy to assure me that this is real, not just Fed manipulation. Businesses are lining up to buy our products, and they only do that when they're doing we'll and feeling optimistic. I'm trying to hire several new people right now and recruiting has gotten really tough.

Buy the dips.

B - no doubt an improving economy may eliminate this topic for discussion but I believe most of us are referring to a systemic problem associated with public employees comp/pension. I can only assume you fund 100% of your employees pension and health benefits.

Please beware, Homer. Although I agree with you about a systematic problem -- Capital P -- associated with public employees comp/pension/salary and the threat this poses in terms of potential drowning in debt beneath a tsunami of unfathomable force brought to us by self-interested public workers and their unions, you have not verified your statement, and thus you are susceptible to being disappeared by the liberal biased PW editors who don't want their readers to hear about the inevitable future.
