    The household income chart is truly disturbing, puts interest rates in perspective.

  2. Petey Wheatstraw says:

    Again, a complementary chart of household wealth, by decile, or finer, would help put this “recovery” in context.

  3. Iamthe50percent says:

    From these charts I see:

    1. A recovered stock market (so of course everything is hunky dory in the USA to the 1%)

    2. A permanent class of unemployed with government pretending it doesn’t exist and industry proclaiming that they can’t find manpower, at least at slave wages.

    3. New car sales skyrocketing while house hold income falls. Probably due to the fantastic repair costs of modern cars. It’s cheaper to keep buying new and having the warranty.

    4. Pretty much static mortgage delinquencies despite the fall in household income. Could be explained by households with a breadwinner not being able to afford to buy at all.Although the Housing Index is slowly rising, how much is about delinquent housing being converted into rental units.

    All in all, I see a world that Dickens would recognize, enforced by Government/Corporation/Bank/NSA collaboration that Orwell would recognize backed by technology he could only dream of.

    The chart “Share of mortgages that are delinquent” doesn’t provide the proper context.

    See the following chart:

    from Russell Investments that shows Mortgage Delinquencies since 1991. Eye-popping!

    Been hearing whispers of sub-prime auto loans……..seems to be aligned with the house hold income and auto sales charts.


    BR: We prefer real data to this sort of nonsensical garbage. Come back with some real stats and pl;ease do not mention “whispers” here again.
