Is the housing bubble crisis furthering stagflation?

*Texas Straight Talk, by Presidential Candidate Ron Paul, March 3, 2008

“It is becoming harder and harder for Washington and the mainstream media to ignore the ripple effect the collapse of the housing bubble is having on the economy.  Inflation is up, cost of food is up, oil and gold are up, foreclosures are up, unemployment is up, government spending is at record highs, its seems that the only thing down is the value of the dollar.  The middle and lower classes are getting squeezed as prices jump and wages stay flat.

Though it is good that Washington is acknowledging the problem instead of sweeping it under the rug, I always get nervous at their ideas of solutions.  A proper solution requires an honest, in-depth look at the root of the problem.”
