Exponential fun. Fantastic story with thought-provoking ideas and great action sequences that dazzle. Also, Keanu Reeves has never been better.

Wait. This is not the Matrix.

Or is it?

What do you say to someone who believes that the mere selection of one person over another in an election will result in the solution to all of these problems?

Mr Slippery,

These trends were "duned" to fail.

When in doubt, quote a movie?

Shame on me.

No problem. How much could a man expect from someone who cannot feel the tip of his left index finger?

Fritz_O,

I found a magic bullet cure!

In all seriousness, awesome game. Cheap too! The only downside is that I haven't played Rocksmith in a few weeks. D'oh! ;)

The "real new median home price" was one I hadn't seen; how do median used home prices compare?

tj and the bear,

I'm not sure. New homes interested me more because it takes workers to build them.

Further, if I was to sell my home to my neighbor and he was to buy my home from me then there might be a lot of economic activity but not many jobs would be created.

Interestingly (at least to me), we'd both be better off if we sold our homes to each other for a dollar. Can't say the real estate agents would like it all that much though!
