Wait so these gold dinars aren't really used in Libya now?

I heard Libya is glowing in the dark these days. Perhaps the idea to start using gold dinars was no so good in retrospect.

home affordability and price growth continues to decline.

bottom line:  the consumer's biggest purchase item in their lifetimes may no longer be their best investment:

What happens when houses can be 3D-printed? A lot of the cost of new housing is *still* labor, but that could very well suddenly drop to almost 0 in the next 10-20yrs. That would mean a big drop in per-sq-ft housing costs across the board. Great for then-first-time-homebuyers, bad for anyone who purchased before that change. That'll really make it obvious that most housing is consumption, not investment. Exception being desirable land/location. But all the nice houses in people farms in lackluster locations should be considered mostly consumption.

Not entirely because of the land that usually comes with a dwelling, but yeah, people should view housing far more along those lines than they currently do.

Housing is a strange animal because it's the only consumer purchase where buyers want to see the price rise. Every other household item like cars, gas, power, household goods, food, rent etc, consumers hate to see price increases. And especially in 2nd hand goods.

Around 30 years ago in Australia, a boat builder developed an ultra cheap house made out of the same material he built yachts with. Even though his designs easily passed every test the building industry usually required (earthquakes, fire, termites etc), the government managed to stop him selling them in australia. I think the average size house was around $6k at the time using his method.

One of the main expenses in building a new house is associated with regulatory issues.  I've found this out the hard way over the course of 2014.  An interesting read is 'Habitat-I' about land.  Even my very greenie friends say "nobody thinks like that."  Probably this friend is correct about what almost all people 'think', at least in the U.S., but it is fair to say that the prescriptions outlined in the document are indistinguishable from what we see today.  At least in my part of the world (Pacific Northwest.)

I'm actually quite fascinated by the 3-D house idea but I think it fair to say that it will itself never be 'labor free', and there will always be a lot of other infrastructure to set up.  It's also some distance out.

Perhaps less far out would be the dream of cramming most of the population into 'stack-n-pack' housing localized to planned population centers.  Some of the 'elites' might be able to enjoy some freedom since they have the wisdom to know how to save the world from the scourge of the unwashed human masses, but they will be a rare breed...and one that I personally want nothing to do with.  I've long planned to abandon 'socialism' when it threatened to be a force to be reckoned with.  I stayed with it to long and to some extent relied to heavily on my own personal definitions of it.  Mea culpa time.

ghash deprecation continues: 24%

is it possible 3's a charm and we never see one pool bump up against 51% again due to Nash equilibrium game theory?  the mining industry may actually be decentralizing as more corporate and maybe eventually sovereign actors decide to mine in addition to the pools going forward.  at any rate, no worries for now despite what all the POS shills scream:

That is because house buyers see it as an investment as well.
