Housing Bubble and Everything Bubble in One Simple Picture

•, By Mike Mish Shedlock

How Did We Get Here?

That's easy.

Average Wages vs CPI

Note the correct CPU comparison for this chart is CPI-W not CPI-U, not that it matters much.

No matter what official CPI one uses, the chart is a joke. Why? The CPI only reflects rent, not actual housing prices.

The Fed made this mistake during the housing bubble and they made it again from 2011 to present.
