Bank of America has revealed the astonishing truth about what is holding back the housing recovery. Low population growth! The population isn't growing as fast as it did in the post World Wars I and II era.

It is truly amazing how BOA finally found the smoking gun.

I wasn't there when announcement was made, but some of these people were:

Really low population growth? They must not have seen the census results in Texas and my local market.

While I agree that the MIGRATION of population is certainly happening * from BLUE to RED states, I suspect the LACK of Growth is more BECAUSE of the economy and the uncertainty

Mike - I think BOA made it up to fill up the speech time allotted to them.

Wallace - I saw a segment about California politicians visiting Texas to figure out why dozens of companies migrated from CA to TX.

Lenn - Jay Leno doesn't need writers anymore. He just needs to read this stuff verbatim.
