from Giles Korzenecki:

Rather than cut taxes or stimulate the economy through spending, the current

government is trying to get the economy moving by lifting consumer confidence.

If the stock market goes up everyone feels happy???

do these Dem idiots know what they're doing? nope!

Judging from the houses featured in the photos for this story, builders still are living in the 80s---or 60s. McMansions? There's no mention of green building in this article, or, apparently in the consciousness of these builders. They might say that green technology is too expensive to incorporate in the building plan. How does that argument hold up when the builders throw in a pool and home theater for their princely palaces? In a future where natural gas may be rationed, we'll see if "small is beautiful" finally finds a receptive audience.

The very definition of "Reaganomics" or "trickle-down economics" or "supply side economics" or whatever you want to call it. And guess who "oh the economy" blames. Talk about clueless.

At the present time builders can claim their homes are green by using projections of energy and cost savings but if after you move in they don't materialize there really not anything you can do. It all sounds good but is really just being used as a new way to line up suckers to pay more for less. Builders will claim anything to get these houses off their balance sheets.

Congrats to the folks that bought this house and their success. Also, good work to the many people who were employed in building the house - great for the economic value added.

I would personally love to have such a home, I just don't have the success or ambition for such, but don't have any problem with those that do.
