The magical mystical free market, also known as taxpayers, should stimulate house builders to the tune of $250 billion. Or so sayeth the national house builders.
Or Else! Because nothing causes plummeting prices to stabilize faster than an even greater oversupply.
For $250 billion we could probably build a giant domed mini-world, kind of like The Truman Show, and populate it with auto executives, house building executives, financial sector criminals and castoffs from the Cato Institute, creating a nice little Bubble Land where they can build and build and build while celebrating how great laissez-faire capitalism is. They can create innovative derivative securities to sell one another while smirking about the stupid liberals to their heart’s content.
It’ll be a completely false and fantastic world, but not much different from the one they currently inhabit.
