No one can deny the Great Recession left a permanent mark on our nation and its economy. But what effect did it have on the American Dream of Home Ownership? That’s the question we set out to answer by asking Phoenix-based Benchmark Research Technologies to survey nearly 1,700 Arizona new home shoppers about their attitudes surrounding home ownership in the post-recession era.
Finally some actual facts! That’s what I was hoping to find when I opened Rod Livdahl’s letter about the “tickle up effect”. Alas, it was not so. It was simply more “theory,” not supported by actual facts in an attempt to disparage President Reagan’s implementation of supply side economics. So I took one statistic, the unemployment rate, and did some research. These facts paint an interesting picture:
Recovery seems to be on the minds of many these days as the economy continues to shake off the after-effects of the recession. Housing prices and sales are climbing, the unemployment rate is falling and near record-low mortgage rates are bringing potential buyers who had been reluctant to make a move during the housing downturn back into the market.

Guess what conservatives?
Mr. Ricker (The Inbox, June 17) is correct that to judge anything one needs a benchmark. Since the Great Depression there have been multiple recessions. If one compares the recoveries from these recessions, the (recovery) from the 2007-2009 Recession has been the slowest. It has lasted longer and has produced fewer jobs than any recovery since the Great Depression. One can quibble over statistics, but the fact remains that the Obama Administration’s handling of the (Bush) recession has been inept, frequently counterproductive and wasteful of taxpayer money. To give Mr. Obama four more years to continue his policies that have given us the slowest recovery in 70 years would be foolish and dangerous.
