There is a lot of debate about how to win the Iraq war, end the Iraq war or quit the Iraq war. Take your pick but the point is moot. The Iraq war will end for the mundane reason that we will not be able to afford it to continue. The war was financed with cheap borrowed money as was much else in the American economy over the last seven years. The cheap money window for American borrowers has closed. It is all a consequence of the housing mess, exasperated by the deficits in trade, oil, consumer spending, government spending and common sense.
There is not a day goes by without visible and painful consequences being felt because of the mortgage and housing mess. Today it is GE who is taking a hit for it's part in being exposed to some of the toxic waste buried into the financial system. Oil is up, dollar is down and the troubles have just begun.
Call it the revenge of the McMansion or the super-sizing of stupidity but almost all aspects of American life, economics and politics will be affected by the huge misallocation of resources into housing.
