  1. I read this article this morning and am having some thoughts about the issue of Failure to Launch. This article complains that children are being coddled, but doesn't suggest much more solution than having a family meal: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/nation-wimps/201612/the-failure-launch-epidemic Competition for resources has made it much more difficult for a young person to own his home. When you own your home you have a greater drive to keep it. When most of your energy is being drained to a vampire rent lord you lose ambition. If the housing industry is being manipulated by realtor vampires, why put all that energy into a middle man between you and the former owner of the home? When the government is devaluing the dollar to make it look like there are gains in the economy, how can you keep the fruits of your effort? Why put any effort into feeding the parasites? Our parents 401K's gain money through rental properties, our parents generation is living off of our generation. In China three generations live together, and China is now buying up 'investment' property in the US. Why leave home? If you refute my arguments please divulge if you own rental property, and how that is good for the economy.
