Housing Prices, The Alleged ‘Downward Spiral’

Corporations keeping domestic assets at a false high for profit and control.

I’ll never afford a house, and nor will many or even most of my friends. And I’m a well-educated, middle-class professional living in “the first world”. I’m 36. In my time I’ve seen more pensions being turned over than trains or banks. In fact I read about train and bank robberies like goddamn fairy tales, while on the news I constantly hear about the sick and poor and elderly, the working class, and now the middle class, being robbed like landless peasants.

I’m-alright-Jack economics make me sick.

Remember the ‘children that would end up homeless on the land their forefathers conquered’ [paraphrased]? Maybe I’m being melodramatic, but I think that’s us.
