Another analytical gem from Chamberlin

From this morning's SDDT:

The perma-bear Case-Schiller home price index said that home prices in the 20 largest metropolitan markets fell by 14.4 percent in the past 12 months.

First, way to show your deep knowledge of the subject by not knowing how to spell the name of the index.

Second, it is nonsensical to assign the adjective "perma-bear" to a statistical index.

Seriously, a statistical index that uses verifiable data to track aggregate home prices is "perma-bear." Unreal.

Unreal indeed. I've seen stupid things published before, but this one takes the cake. Doesn't that paper have an editor?

Unfortunately, Chamberlin IS the executive editor. So he can pretty much print whatever nonsense floats his boat.

That guy is a moron. Funny how if he had bothered to check out the index prior to '05 he could have had a much better case referring to it as a perma-bull index.

One has to guess where the money comes to keep this guy on any kind of payroll. If and when a major recession hits I would hope he is out of a job since he can't seem to fulfill it as a respectable writer.

Chowderhead paid off by his buddy Maron Retard

And the rest of the real estate scammers and scum in San Diego.

KOGO is paid by the realtors and builder companies. All commercial radio is that - commercials with mostly worthless filler ie) that goofball Chip Franklin and Coast to Coast zanies.
