    Fun graph. Shame that it is linear not log scale.

    It is the upward climb in prices that is exhilarating if you’re a home owner and the downward plunge that is slow, tedious and painful (more so if you’re a buyer seeking bottom).
    Even so, it’s a great visual analogy…

    I wonder what it would look like with with the value of the dollar with respect to other world currencies factored in. Much of the last 6 years worth of stock increase has actuily been the deflation of the dollars worth not the increase of the stockmarket value.
