Nicole Gelinas, Manhattan Institute senior fellow and author of the new book: After the Fall: Saving Capitalism from Wall Street--and Washington joins us at 130 Pacific to talk about her latest at National Review:
How Taxes Drive Down Home Values…
Standard & Poor’s released the latest Case-Shiller data on house prices on Tuesday, and the results weren’t pretty. In the past five years, house prices have declined to 2003 levels, and the average home declined in price by 3.9 percent over the last year alone. National politicians are scrambling to reverse the trend. But the remedy lies in state houses and town halls.
Two weeks ago, both Republicans and Democrats in Congress cited the struggling housing market as their reason for extending an “emergency” subsidy for homebuyers. The taxpayer-backed Federal Housing Administration will continue to guarantee mortgages on houses worth as much as $729,500, something it has done for three years. No middle-class family can afford such a home. But the home-builders lobby argued that a reduction in the guarantee would mean less demand and thus lower home prices not just at the top, but throughout the market. If you can buy an “expensive” bottle of wine for cheap, why buy the cheap bottle? The same thing goes for houses: When expensive houses become cheaper, there is less demand — and thus lower prices — for even cheaper houses.
No matter how hard Washington tries, though, it can’t legislate away reality. And the reality is that even half a decade into a housing slump, Americans still have good reasons to be wary of plunking down their hard-earned cash and signing up for a long-term mortgage. These reasons are closer to, well, home, than to Washington.

When Welfare Pays Better than Work
CATO INSTITUTE: By Michael D. Tanner - The federal government funds 126 separate programs targeted towards low-income people, 72 of which provide either cash or in-kind benefits to individuals. (The rest fund community-wide programs for low-income neighborhoods, with no direct benefits to individuals.) State and local governments operate more welfare programs.Of course, no individual or family gets benefits from all 72 programs, but many do get aid from a number of them at any point in time. - Read more...
