mircea_popescu so today i learned that while in romania you pay 350 euros a month to rent a property worth 70k, in the us you miostly pay 700 dollars a month to rent a property worth 30k [19:46]
mircea_popescu you people are getting gypped over there big time. [19:46]
Duffer1 we know :( [19:46]
mircea_popescu but i mean... 4.5x ? come on. it's real estate not nuclear physics. [19:47]
mircea_popescu 10, 15, 17% more i can see. 450% ?! [19:47]
pankkake I doubt prices are the same in the whole US [19:47]
Duffer1 there are too many reasons that compound the issue [19:47]
pankkake if you want to laugh, come to Paris [19:47]
mike_c i've been renting for 15 years and have not found that to be true. [19:47]
mircea_popescu pankkake this was spurred by a guy's data re central ohio. meanwhile i had intel check it out [19:47]
mircea_popescu it is eerilie universal to the us, yes. [19:47]
mircea_popescu just property values vary. [19:48]
assbot [HAVELOCK] [SFI] 4880 @ 0.001 = 4.88 BTC {2} [19:48]
mircea_popescu mike_c california and ny stand out as exceptions [19:48]
Duffer1 far higher than normal right? [19:48]
Duffer1 "normal" [19:48]
mike_c well, if it is true in the midwest, it is likely related to the fact that nobody can get a mortgage anymore in the us. [19:48]
assbot [HAVELOCK] [SFI] 30000 @ 0.001 = 30 BTC [19:49]
mircea_popescu Duffer1 exaggerate to hell property values, which make rents a smaller proportion but also exaggerated to all hell. [19:49]
mircea_popescu hardly a "fix" [19:49]
mircea_popescu mike_c no, it's really the baseline that's hidden from you because in california rents are what, 1300 minimum [19:49]
mircea_popescu so that scrunches up the curve. [19:49]
mike_c hah. 1300 would be awesome. i paid 2100 in CA. [19:50]
mircea_popescu you're still being taxed 50k for the priviledge of existing, it just shows up less in the %s [19:50]
mircea_popescu mike_c minimum, ya know ? [19:50]
pankkake is housing out of official inflation statistics? [19:50]
mircea_popescu pankkake obviously. [19:50]
mike_c whatever is inflating is removed from the inflation statistics. [19:51]
Duffer1 hehe [19:51]
peterL yeah, housing and food are not included in CPI calculations, IIRC [19:51]
mircea_popescu i had not previously realised the us is on such a weak footing, tbh. i mean i had a general notion, but i never cared enough to examine the real estate situation. [19:51]
pankkake food isn't either? lol [19:51]
mircea_popescu not to mention you idiots - as there's no better name - still don't use torrens. [19:51]
mircea_popescu what in the actual fuck, is it 1785 in the us ? [19:52]
Duffer1 torrents? [19:52]
mircea_popescu jesus. [19:52]
pankkake that's the two things that indeed have inflated big time in the last years [19:52]
mircea_popescu Duffer1 torrens is a title registration system [19:52]
peterL what's torrens? [19:52]
mircea_popescu which makes it quite feasible for me to buy up real estate personally [19:52]
Duffer1 never heard of it [19:52]
mircea_popescu rather than having to hire some "experts" [19:52]
mircea_popescu to fucking fleece me. [19:52]
mike_c please. having to hire a lawyer, real estate agent, title company, escrow agent, etc, etc. is totally reasonable! [19:53]
mircea_popescu totally. [19:53]
peterL MP, I currently rent a house for about twice it would take to buy it with a mortgage, but because of my credit I cannot get a morgage to buy a house. [19:53]
mircea_popescu i never used ANYONE. not a real estate agent, title company or escrow. ever. [19:53]
Duffer1 wouldn't matter even if we did use such a system, housing as you pointed out is is obscenely expensive [19:53]
mircea_popescu all i used was a half hour of notary public time, cost me ~35 [19:53]
Duffer1 add to that the 35year olds and under have less than zero wealth [19:54]
mircea_popescu Duffer1 it's only obscenely expensive BECAUSE of such restrictions [19:54]
mircea_popescu peterL yeah well, how much you paying and what's it worth ? [19:54]
Duffer1 those agents take their fees on top of list price [19:55]

peterL I have not estimated exactly what a mortgage would cost for a while, but it is $1000 rent, house is maybe $90000 [19:55]

mircea_popescu peterL you're not getting gypped quite as bad as the average. [19:56]
mircea_popescu which, incidentally, is one of the deep causes of us real estate bubbles, i am coming to realise. [19:56]
assbot [HAVELOCK] [VTX] 4 @ 0.0601 = 0.2404 BTC [-] [19:56]
mircea_popescu it's not loose money policies that cause those, and loose money policies don't cause them in the eu. [19:56]
mircea_popescu it's the ingrained notion learned through experience by all us inhabitants that the more you pay the less you're gouged [19:56]
peterL My previous house sold for about $30000 and is renting for $900 a month [19:56]
mircea_popescu which is wrong, but they look at the percents. [19:56]
mircea_popescu on top of that, loose money bubbles the real estate. because they'd rather be the guy paying 1k for a 90k property [19:57]
mircea_popescu than the guy paying 700 for the 30k property. [19:57]
mircea_popescu obviously it's easier to inflate than to improve. [19:57]
mircea_popescu peterL EXACTLY. [19:57]
mircea_popescu quite frankly, i can not see how anyone'd put up with this arrangement. [19:59]
peterL let me guess, you were investigating "rentalStarter"? [19:59]
mircea_popescu peterL it started there. [19:59]
mircea_popescu why, you know something i don't ? [19:59]

pankkake and tradeable [20:02]
mircea_popescu pankkake that's the only reason this may make sense, the guy seems to know the situation on the ground [20:02]

pankkake I'm already invested in real estate, and I feel like I'm sitting on a bubble :D [20:03]
mircea_popescu just, not the usual "it's been 5 days, any updates ?" sort of "investing" [20:03]
mircea_popescu this requires more long term thinking. [20:04]
peterL OK, who wants to help me buy a house and I will pay rent in bitcoins? [20:04]
mircea_popescu pankkake unless there's a war, $30k detached housing in ohio CAN NOT be a bubble. [20:04]

mike_c hah. good point. they will pay you to take housing in detroit. [20:05]
mircea_popescu but obviously, before buying in one'd have to very seriously consider awhole host of things. [20:05]
mircea_popescu which is what investing is. [20:06]
mircea_popescu mike_c you know, california is going detroit before ohio is. [20:06]

the20year Oh wow [20:25]
nubbins` yeah [20:25]
the20year one option that I considered, but it just didn't work out for us was to buy a home warranty [20:25]
nubbins` just too costly to upgrade to electric heat [20:25]
the20year are you on gas? [20:26]
nubbins` oil [20:26]

mircea_popescu Real estate development can return several milion dollars in just a 9 month development phase << i know a guy that blew up a fortune trying and failing at that. [20:27]
nubbins` more of an ebb-and-flow than an instant-heat sort of system [20:27]
mircea_popescu it's a fucking movie script of a story [20:27]
the20year i'm not too familiar with all the types of oil ones [20:27]
the20year mircea_popescu: plenty fail [20:27]
the20year The saying when I got into real estate was "Make money in wheelbarrow fulls, loose money in dumptruckfulls" [20:28]
nubbins` the20year: basically it's a standard oil furnace, but instead of heating air and pumping it through vents, it heats a large water reservoir that is then circulated throughout the house to radiators [20:28]
mircea_popescu and the us does niot have an inflation problem [20:28]
the20year Even worse [20:28]
the20year I've seen one radiant water heater manage to destroy about $15,000 worth of flooring [20:28]
mircea_popescu nubbins` that's how most europe is heated, except natural gas not oil. [20:28]
the20year natural gas in the US is very, very efficient and cheap [20:28]
mircea_popescu the20year wall attachments are standard. [20:28]
nubbins` it's not a bad system, because you retain the heat after the furnace stops firing [20:29]
mircea_popescu and the bathroom heated towel rack. [20:29]
mircea_popescu the20year same all over the world. [20:29]
the20year Yeah, but the water part is the problem. Using a high flash point oil is much better [20:29]
the20year I pay about $80/mo in the winter to heat my home [20:29]
nubbins` and the cold water going to the water boiler for the faucets/shower gets pre-warmed by the waste heat from the furnace, so that helps [20:29]
mircea_popescu about the same here. [20:29]
mircea_popescu you know, amusingly, most us folk i know think romania is a sort of ohio. [20:29]
nubbins` but oil is just expensive. no sweat to drop $450+ a month in the winter [20:29]
the20year Yeah [20:29]
the20year I'd much, much rather be on wood than oilk [20:30]
nubbins` yeah [20:30]
nubbins` i'd fucking LOVE a wood stove [20:30]
nubbins` but downtown st john's is all 100-year old wooden row houses [20:30]
mircea_popescu last i checked wood here was ~$22 a stere meter. [20:30]
the20year how so mircea_popescu? The Ohioans I know that have been there said it was nothing like Ohio in terms of society or economy......maybe the land is similar [20:30]

mircea_popescu a perfect illustration of the incredible damage lincoln's imbecillity did to that country. [23:39]
the20year what imbecillity? [23:39]
Duffer1 after the civil war we should have just let the south separate [23:39]
mircea_popescu if the slavery question were allowed to die out rather than used as a pretext for a war, you wouldn't still be fighting over the mason-dixon line in 2013 ffs. [23:39]

TomServo Can we hear all 5? [23:41]
the20year It can be hard to speculate how different things would be if we could swap decisions out [23:41]
Duffer1 the harm done by lincoln was necessary imo, even if slavery was one of many reasons for the war, emancipation still needed to occur [23:41]
TomServo Yeah, I'm having trouble imagining how the question would 'die out' [23:41]
the20year There could of potentially been a slow transition [23:42]
mircea_popescu TomServo roosevelt probably not in there, as shocking as that may seem. hoover for sure tho. [23:42]

mircea_popescu hardly half the inheritors of slaves intended to keep them past the death of their parents. [23:43]
mircea_popescu the20year that's a huge discussion tbh [23:43]
mircea_popescu TomServo because slavery was fundamentally an economic interest, and it is economically ineffectual. it WAS already dieing out at the time of the war [23:43]
mircea_popescu however, it was dieing out in a sustainable way, rather than creating the black ghettos that the war created. [23:44]
Duffer1 even if they didn't intend to keep them, southern laws forbade their existence outside of any context that didn't revolve around a white master [23:44]
mircea_popescu Duffer1 slavery laws in the south were evolving, like any body of laws. [23:44]
mircea_popescu if you look at their evolution, the thing was doomed anwyay. [23:44]
the20year And slavery today isn't very popular at all , outside of sexual slavery which is a whole other ballgame [23:45]
Duffer1 slavery laws weren't modernized until the 50's and 60s, i believe you're underestimating southern racism [23:45]
the20year And it's not like slavery was only existant in the US, as with anything ,money drives the gears [23:45]
the20year Duffer1: do you live in the south? [23:45]
Duffer1 i grew up in texas [23:45]
mircea_popescu Duffer1 souther racism as you know it today is wholly the creation of the war. [23:45]
mircea_popescu it was entirely a different thing in 1820. [23:46]
the20year The thing is , of all the souterners i Know , none really were racist, but i've known plenty of ohio natives that were extremely racist. Heck my great uncle was in the KKK [23:46]
mircea_popescu in fact, pre-war southern racism is closest to modern day view on criminality. [23:47]
mircea_popescu you could argue that the way criminals are handled today is chiefly designed to keep them criminals [23:47]
mircea_popescu nevertheless, people don't generally intend this. [23:47]

mircea_popescu but the southerner recognised an extremely varied and complex hierarchy. black = slave = chattel is about as oversimplified as one can get. [23:48]
Duffer1 it's a for-profit prison system [23:48]
mircea_popescu yeah, well. [23:48]
mircea_popescu so what's the gain of the war ? picked a different nigger to pile on ? [23:48]
mircea_popescu criminals "just happen" to be mostly black anyway, hooray for progress. [23:48]
the20year I'm not aware of any gain [23:48]
TomServo how was it economically ineffectual? [23:48]
mircea_popescu TomServo you get more gdp per capita out of 100 barristas trying to write hollywood scripts [23:49]
mircea_popescu than out of 100 field hands picking cotton. [23:49]
the20year Correct [23:49]
Duffer1 the only gain from the war was emancipation, poverty was guaranteed regardless, except for those that left [23:49]
the20year Slaves were extremely ineffective at work, however a 'free' black was significantly more valuable [23:49]
the20year Look at price rates for irish vs germans vs blacks in new york state in the 1800s [23:50]

mircea_popescu exactly. but looky : it is an act of betrayal, fundamentally.] [23:55]
mircea_popescu for there to be betrayal there must be trust. trust is the substance of contracts, which is exactly antithetical to how black-white relations are customarioly represented. [23:56]
mircea_popescu it is in fact the way the whites of the time represented them to themselves, mostly. [23:56]
mircea_popescu and now, the fact that upriver conditions are softer and downriver harser kind of proves that the situation is in fact evolving [23:56]
