The lighter side of the US housing debacle

The lighter side of the US housing debacle

The US housing situation is turning out to be a nightmare of much worse proportions than was generally expected not so long ago. And, to reemphasize my viewpoint, it is still rather difficult to detect even the faintest ray of light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. But with all painful situations there is usually also a lighter, or humorous, side. For instance earlier today, when paging through one of my PowerPoint presentations of about a year ago, I came across an assortment of housing-related advertisements and cartoons that made me think back fondly (in a somewhat perverse way) of the “bubble days”. I am sharing some of these with you in the hope of bringing a smile to your face in this otherwise fairly grim hour.
