Believe it or not, many must drive due to health reasons.

The toxic burbs that resemble your description are in ecologically unsustainable regions from Phoenix to Las Vegas, throughout the midwest and southwest, and environmentally doomed areas near sea level (Florida comes to mind). And of course, sprawling southern California where desperate housewives wait for banks to foreclose on their million dollar properties with garaged Bentley’s. Nothing new here.

Telecommuting will increase and the suburbs are much nicer and healthier.

Shopping & entertainment are going more & more on the internet, so being in a crowded and polluted city makes no sense for the quality of life.

We had a feast of price increases on RE, so what? Somebody made money (banks/construction companies), there is no need to kill the few housing tax incentives unless u create more jobs and reduce corporate and employees taxation (by a great degree, not just 1 or 2%) that is the highest in all the world.

And inflation will come soon to cure it, no need to wait a generation.
