Housing Impact on GDP

Wednesday, May 16, 2007 | 11:30 AM

Its apparent from yesteday's Earnings release that the impact of Housing is working its way into the earnings picture. So far, the impact has been very specific, and limited to Retail (Home Depot, Circuit City), a few Transports (Yellow Roadway, UPS), and of course the Home Builders. Thus far, Financials have contained the impact of sub-prime, but are seeing originations and loan volumes fall.

Here is a quick round up of where else Housing is impacting the economy, via RGE:

It's apparent to the people who actually read through and interpret data and articles in there own way. A post asks why can't it be said what is really going on with inflation......because as BR knows it is career suicide to go against the normal channels of media and it's spin on any negative news that does'nt support the current administration's agenda.

Whether we like it or not (or want to admit it) our gov't is engaged in one of the largest frauds and financial chicanery that we've ever been witness to. Remember what happned in Hungary last year???

It will most likely never be exposed as the fraud it is however if it were it would make watergate look like a children's picnic.

Remember inflation is not a problem if you do not drive anywhere or eat anything......just ask our gov't they'll tell you.

Sheeple in full effect
