In fact, prior to the 1980’s it never dipped below 70 percent. Since 1982, however, it has come down by half.

Je ne sais pas si le probleme est generalise. Mais une chose est certaine, ca ne va pas bien dans l’immobilier aux States, et les revelations faites dans le video (vraies ou fausses) laissent notre imagination extrapoler un peu trop facilement. 😉
