Jason Hartman talks about home prices in the U.S. As home prices have seen a strong bounce in June, will this last? Will the cost of ingredients for a home drop? Cyclical markets see the most movement. How much has The Federal Reserve lent to other countries?

Living in urban areas has historically been out of necessity. Currently, technological advances have taken away the demand for living in highly populated areas. Taylor and Hartman discuss the change in housing costs as influenced by the bubonic plague 800 years ago, but how reliable is this information?
