Stuart Gabriel tells the truth about the housing market in this piece. So, how do we get our groove back? As my loyal readers know, I want to see the United States auction off 2 million passports a year. Our passport is a valuable export commodity so selling these would generate hundreds of billions of dollars of revenue. In addition, the successful international people who would buy these permits would need a U.S house to live in. Their demand would help to stabilize our housing markets.
