So making more money and being more famous makes you more important? Bob, please you need better ethics.
Besides..Nationally known (by some) and well respected economist. ( umm..maybe well respected by realtors that have had their head in the sand for the last decade and blindly follow what he says)
More well known than anyone on this forum? I'm reminded of a conversation by a wise man once:
1st person: I wish I was famous and rich.
2nd person: I'll take rich but forget being famous. Anonymity is something the famous can never buy.

And yet...investors are seriously impacting the market in California and other areas with distressed housing.
from the above WaPo article:
"The cost of renting in the United States reached an all-time high compared with that of buying a home at the end of last year, indicating that it is a good time for investors to buy, according to Deutsche Bank analysts. Should property values rebound, Waypoint may earn at least 20 percent from appreciation in an eventual sale of the houses, says Colin Wiel, who co-founded the firm in 2008 after backing technology start-ups as an angel investor."
“I never thought I’d be rolling up single-family homes,” Wiel says. “But the yields are awesome.”

My comments were in response to someone who was making a typically blanket opinion, about someone because that's the BEAR thing to do. A poster without a clue about the person they were posting an opinion of, simply because that's the opinion they've heard from fellow bears, none of whom have the slightest idea about the targeted person, or his credentials.
