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

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:

Actually there is a grain of truth to this.  Many illegals have left the country and also left thousands of homes sitting vacant.  There are probably millions of homes sitting vacant because no one can afford to either purchase them or even rent them.  But to try to get more population growth just to become a bank customer isn't the way to go.

I have also seen this stated a bit differently. The portion of the population that is growing is the minority population which is not generally the "home ownership" part of the demographics. But then there was some comments about racism towards whoever said this.

Wallace, thanks for the reblog.

Businesses, employers and employees are fleeing highly taxed states, which will decrease tax revenue, which will cause increased taxes on those who are left, which will cause more flight.

Quite a merry go round.

The population is still growing faster than we are building housing units.

Caterpillar is considering leaving Illinois due to the recent tax increase.  If this happens, people will follow suit, and move to where the jobs are, thereby decreasing the population of the highly taxed state.  Moynihan didn't address that aspect.

People see MORE employment opportunities in RED states than are in BLUE states * Blue states won't have employers OR employees to tax and they will become TOTAL welfare states.....MORE fences, please!
