"TATA, which famously brought a $2500 car to India, is now is taking orders for an entire house (without garage for the nano car) for 32,000 rupees ($720). That's $3.34 per square foot! The kit includes doors, windows and roof, and is made of coconut or jute fibre, and can be assembled in a week."As one Indian correspondent pointed out, that's "cheaper than an iPad."
To rent or to buy: what used to be a given – that you would buy a home as soon as you could afford to – has become an agonizing conundrum for many a would-be homebuyer, in the face of the housing market’s big bust and super-slow recovery. Low prices seem to create a wide-open window of opportunity, but they also create the concern that prices will keep falling after closing.And that Catch-22 has hundreds of thousands of buyers-to-be stuck on the fence

I just walked out of a disappointing meeting with the White House: they refused to accept the Carter solar panel we came to Washington to deliver and said that they would continue their "deliberative process" to discuss putting solar panels back on the White House roof.
Well, we're done deliberating. When Pakistan is under water, Russia is on fire, and millions of people are ready for clean energy jobs, it's not time to deliberate: it's time to get to work.
Today marks the one month countdown to the 10/10/10 Global Work Party. Will you help us celebrate by signing up to register orattend an event today?
We entered this morning's meeting buoyed by the over 40,000 of you who signed our letter requesting President Obama to make the retrofit. We were equally heartened by the hundreds of work parties that have been registered since our road trip began on Tuesday. And we were humbled by reports of the amazing work being planned in places like Zimbabwe, where a group of students will be installing solar panels on the roof of a rural hospital for 10/10/10.
I'm also incredibly proud of the three students from Unity College who stood right up to the officials we met with and explained to them that if they wanted to communicate about the greening of the government they should do something in a place where people pay attention.
This week's road trip got incredible media coverage in places like Newsweek, the Washington Post, USA Today, and more. Thousands of you helped spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. Hundreds of you signed up new work parties to show how you're leading this movement for climate solutions. Because in the end, that's what it is going to take: a movement.
Your efforts are building incredible momentum. In the last month, big partners like Greenpeace, Rainforest Action Network, Sierra Club, and the World Council of Churches have joined the 10:10 Campaign and350.org in planning for 10/10/10. The day will be a moment to bring our entire movement together and show our so-called leaders what real leadership looks like.
As for the Carter solar panel, it's going to stay in Washington for now, ready for President Obama to come take it home. And as for me, I'm going to head home myself for a few days of rest before hitting the road again to drum up support for 10/10/10.
Your hard work means the world to us, let's keep up the fight.
350.org is an international grassroots campaign that aims to mobilize a global climate movementunited by a common call to action. By spreading an understanding of the science and a shared vision for a fair policy, we will ensure that the world creates bold and equitable solutions to the climate crisis. 350.org is an independent and not-for-profit project. What is 350? 350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Scientists measure carbon dioxide in "parts per million" (ppm), so 350ppm is the number humanity needs to get below as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change. To get there, we need a different kind of PPM-a "people powered movement" that is made of people like you in every corner of the planet.
"It's harder these days to get a mortgage Even with FHA backing own money is required Payments may not exceed 33% And at least a 620 credit rating must generally be provided Analysts are generally speaking in agreement with Washington's claim that much of he blame for America's foreclosure crisis should be fairly and" ...
My view; According to interviews with financial industry insiders, it is harder to get loans these days, even for people with good credit. Why?
In the opinion of this financial insider, lenders still think homes are risky loans, even for good credit risk customers. These large banks like B of A and Wells Fargo are getting taxpayer money at a cost to them of .25%, in practically unlimited quantities. They then turn around and buy US Bonds/Treasuries that pay 3-4%, and pocket the difference. There is zero risk in Treasury bonds..
But then the money that these banks invest in US bonds is serving to finance all of the things that the US government has to borrow money for, and cannot afford to pay for, like the war in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the hundreds of military bases overseas, not to mention social welfare payments to companies like Exxon, which paid zero taxes last year, while making 60 Billion in profits. Meanwhile, what I have seen is that US citizens cannot borrow money to buy homes, because banks will turn them down for all kinds of silly reasons, that have nothing to do with the borrower or basic qualifying.
My question is this; This 'free' money is borrowed from the Federal Reserve, right? The Federal Reserve does not hand out money for free, as they are not a charity, right? The Federal Reserve is a private for profit organization, right? This means that we, you and I are being charged for this money being given away for free to the banks. They charge US taxpayers interest, which is at this point I believe somewhere in the range of 4%. Doesn't this mean that the US taxpayer is being soaked? ... Remember the story of robbing Peter to pay Paul? This is just one opinion of course.. What are your thoughts on this matter?
