I love these two charts – they are so instructive in so many ways. They really invite closer study as to why some cities have recovered so strongly, and why others have failed to.
The first 4 cities in the % from Bubble peaks are Las Vegas, Phoenix, Miami, and Tampa. These cities saw huge booms in housing but without a proportional accompaniment increase in economic activity. Especially in terms of the jobs creation that would allow people to pay those cheap mortgages which supported those elevated prices.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
