An interesting NPR spot addressing the “new” home ownership in America:

    “How homeownership is viewed has changed from the asset it used to be. Consumers are using their homes for home-equity loans, which makes them a source of income rather than the debt they are. Shira Boss, author of Green with Envy: A Whole New Way to Look at Financial (Un)Happiness talks about how the mortgage meltdown reflects changing attitudes toward home ownership with Steve Inskeep.”
