Real estate experts say mess could be solved if government would stop helping (or Say Uncle)


GOOD: Uncle Sam want to help economy

BAD: Uncle Sam = bureaucracy and regulations

UGLY: Cash sales of homes are investors =  renters and not home ownership

BOTTOMELINE: Uncle Sam helped create this real estate bubble so is he the best person to fix it?

“Washington is the biggest obstacle to our recovery,” said Robert Jacobs, chief investment officer of Broe Group, a Denver-based real estate investment and development firm. “The best thing they can do is to stop doing anything. The economy wants to grow. Washington is not the solution, it’s the problem.” Read more:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/realestate/real-estate-experts-say-mess-could-be-solved-if-government-would-stop-helping/2012/07/18/gJQAn4MiwW_story.html

HUMOR: ILVTOFU (or WTF with regulators)


Bookmark and Share

(Reuters) – When Whitney Calk sought a personalized license plate from a Tennessee state agency to tout her vegetarian ideals, she was annoyed when she was told no. Turns out the letters ILVTOFU can be construed to mean more than enjoying bean curd.

“When I see T-O-F-U, I see tofu,” says Calk, who requested the so-called vanity plate from the Tennessee Department of Revenue last September.

Keep Going, Keep Going, Keep Going, Oppps Gone! Fun for Bank Regulators

THE GOOD: Trying fix banks

THE BAD: Trying fix banks

THE UGLY: Trying fix banks European style will result in small banks stuck in rules and regulation that will result in them closing the door on business that need capital!

Fed proposes stricter capital rules for banks ( THE ASSOCIATED PRESS June 7, 2012, 8:34PM ET )

The Federal Reserve wants U.S. banks to set aside more money to cushion against unexpected losses, a key step in preventing another financial crisis.

The Fed governors voted 7-0 on Thursday to propose rules requiring all banks hold at least 7 percent of their assets in capital reserves. That’s up from a minimum of 2 percent currently required and in line with international standards.

The rules are open to comment until September. They will be finalized after that. But some banks won’t have to meet the requirements until 2019. That’s because the rules have to be coordinated with international standards that are being phased in over the next seven years.

What do you think is the best law for investors?

Vote and/or leave your views!

HUMOR:

My Apologizies! Here are two free tickets so get the ______ out!

Do you agree or not that strong leaders can and should apologizie!

or should they say I lead and you follow?

 Forbes.com (6/05/2012) Courageous Leaders Don’t Make Excuses…They Apologize

Apologizing freely requires a good deal of courage.  It’s not comfortable for any of us to admit an error, or to acknowledge that something we’ve done has caused others harm or inconvenience. So when someone truly apologizes, we know he or she is putting honesty and honor above personal comfort or self-protection.  It’s inspiring, and it feels brave.
