Comments on: Millennials: forever renters or just delayed homeowners? http://blogs.reuters.com/data-dive/2014/07/25/millennials-forever-renters-or-just-delayed-homeowners/ Mon, 23 Mar 2015 20:11:41 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: DennisVictor223 http://blogs.reuters.com/data-dive/2014/07/25/millennials-forever-renters-or-just-delayed-homeowners/comment-page-1/#comment-151 Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:38:38 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/data-dive/?p=1350#comment-151 To get a House or a nice apartment, A good paying job is the first step. This White House is full of people with no clue on how to make that possible. Their ideology mandates cynicism and hostility to the private sector. Distrust of employers and rabid anti growth environmentalism. The root cause of this seems to be the willingness to de humanize anyone with a different opinion on how to move forward. The first step should have been recovery of the job market. The big driver in that has been energy, Oil in North Dakota, Gas in Pensylvania, and the XL pipeline. While permits and development on public land has fallen, the private sector has produced jobs and economic growth. Without those activities hated, with every fiber of the liberal mind, we would be in a recession. Jason Furman was the source of the idea that loosing your full time employment was actually a good thing because you could persue your dreams. News outlets still print his crazed mutterings!

It dropped 43% from 2007 to 2013. And is SLOW to rebound.

It’s what happens to “instant gratifiers”. They can’t afford the down payment for a house, but they’ve got the latest iPhone and big screen TV…

Sending jobs overseas is great for stock and stockholders, but terrible for the economy as a whole. These are simply unintended consequences of globalization, but our newly religious corporation-persons don’t care.

The rest of the story explains why the situation of people living in their parent’s basement is bad for housing and bad for the economy. I don’t see the explanation of how the White House plans to “help” these people???

Maybe the key phrase is “wants” to help? Even though there is no real plan in place? Sort of like: I “want” to be rich and famous someday.

They are “comfy-cozy” there with their tech-toys and paying no rent.
