American Welfare is Better
American Welfare is Better
So they have larger houses in the USA, even made cheaply with wood and such, but they often have a basement, a garage, an attic, extra room, they have room, they have backyards and such and wide roads. So if you have a son or daughter or relative out of a job and without a house just put them in the garage and make a room for him, or put him in the basement or attic and such, and that will create less room and house problems: in Europe they don't have extra room in houses, they have small, tight, puny houses and tight roads, they don't have room enough etc. So they are poorer in this respect compared to the USA and therefore they have higher house prices, way higher than in the USA. And in fact the housing bubble in the USA hurts more because people have extra room they can use, the housing bubbles that popped in Spain or the UK (and that must still pop in Italy, but they forgot to pop it or is it that their owner class is never going to let it pop so as to create hugely artificially high prices for puny homes forever since no market forces work in that Failed Puny Cartoon Economy of Italy ?) didn't make the prices go down much: they should have crashed like crazy, they should have been cut all by 90 %, a 3 bedroom house in the center of London or Madrid or Rome should not cost more than 50,000 dollars, but since those economies don't operate by market forces, only by the strong ones making the prices and forcing them down everyone's throat, they will always be much poorer than the USA.
And in the USA you get food stamps to eat, so there: you get a room and can eat no matter what, in Europe you are not granted either structurally, it is a failed puny continent of greedy Right Wing Thugs.
But then you have the Health Care costs in the USA that compensate the free room and board of the USA described above, so as you see, the law of conservation of wealth is observed anyways across different systems, either you pay in one way or in another, and in the USA there are many more homeless than in the EU, another weird effect, but then again, the law of conservation of wealth or (pain and pleasure) compensates the puny homes in the EU with stronger family ties or something else, who knows...
Failed State ?
When a country is bankrupt and can't pay anymore, then all of their imports cost more, a lot more, there is very little exchange value left for the country: you would think that under those circumstances the prices of local goods should go way down to compensate how much the Failed State must pay for Computers or TVs or Energy and such, so the value of homes should go way, way down and so should local food and such. But for every force there is an equal and contrasting force operating, and since the number of economic exchanges is reduced in a failing and dying economy, there is a force that would make the price of homes go way, way up since those few exchanges that are still going on become the only chance to gain some cash and such. So what will it be ? Home prices going up or down in Failed States such as Greece, Portugal, Spain and Italy ? Whatever, the entire "Science" of Economics is a failed endeavor, like the blind man that wins a chess game by guessing while the loser tries to figure it all out: there are no rules or objective reality, only random forces going any place.
And then,the very meaning of an economy "growing" and "healthy" is an economy with many exchanges, as many as possible, people exchanging a huge number of items and such, and that makes the economy "grow", but in order to have that, the prices must be low and everyone should have something that someone else thinks is valuable to exchange. But how on earth is that going to happen anymore, with jobs being automated out of existence and fewer and fewer real possible exchanges and such and debts to pay, so fewer exchanges and such ?
