One can buy homes in parts of Southern California, such as Desert Hot Springs, now for 50 bucks a square foot. The market, through its pricing mechanism, is sorting out the real estate situation with lightning speed. If government props up those who hold the mortgages, it will only delay and distort this effective, but sometimes painful, process." Quotes-end.png
