The middle gets crushed

Yeah, I've heard several stories of professional couples who are begging mom and dad for money because they can't make their mortgage payments. If their hours are cut, then they'll be forced to sell. These are households making ~$150,000. Those making less are locked out of owning a house.

Fixed, low rates on debt for the 0.1%. Low supply of housing. Middle class forced to sell because can't pay mortgage. So, rents go up. The top 0.1% gets 5% from T-bills and increasing rent payments from the squeezed middle. Simple and diabolical.
