Of the housing posts, the most popular were:
Part 77: Housing is defining politics and the repercussions are dreadful
Part 8 - The crisis didn't happen the way you think it happened
Dr. Shiller, heal thyself
Part 88 - Supply, Demand, and Economic Migration
Part 1 - I was wrong. The mortgage deduction is just the tip of the iceberg.
Back then, this was mostly just an idle curiosity about taxes and home values. I have, unfortunately had to leave some of the early questions unanswered as I discovered new avenues for research that have been more salient. Part 2 isn't nearly as popular. I suspect a lot of people have read some of the later stuff, decided they should go back and start from the beginning, and after part 1, thought, "Shit, this is boring."Part 51 - Housing and Strong Form IMH
Part 85 - Housing Prices were sustainable because of migration
Part 76 - There are two Americas.
Part 65 - Reasoning from a Daisy Chain
Part 78 - The Intractability of economic stagnation with a supply constraint
Part 33 - Higher Home Prices can lead to Larger Homes
