Big Bubbles! House Price Bubbles and Financial Stress (The Do Ho Financial Market)


by Anthony B Sanders
Yes, we live in a “Do Ho” economy where bubbles (and not tiny ones) are pervasive. 
Look at the YoY growth in the all-transactions index from FHFA for US house prices compared to the St Louis Fed Financial Stress Index.
When the financial stress index is low (less than zero), we see BIG home price bubbles.
Of course, home price bubbles occur when YoY changes in home prices outpace household earnings growth YoY.
If Don Ho were still alive, he could redo tiny bubbles as BIG bubbles.

If everyone who reads our story, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support the IWB – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. 127 views
