Housing starts (2010-21)

But, housing supply does not have a cartel like oil suppliers have OPEC.

So, most builders & lots of town councils obtained overzealous & overbuilt stock.

As a end result, months of offer from new building is >400% that of resale models!

3 interventions from the federal government:

  1. Pare or reduce benchmark rates
  2. Resume QE of RMBS
