GM's Woes May Burst Housing Bubble
"The use-your-house-as-an-ATM-to-live-beyond-your-means stimulus is finished, thanks to the recent de-leveraging/crackup in the bond market. The refi[nance] game and the bull market in housing it created postponed the consequences of the largest stock-market bubble in history. Though the Fed and the rest of the government succeeded in postponing the fallout from the massive misallocation of capital that took place in the mania, they have also succeeded in compounding and exacerbating those consequences."
