    Getting the government out of the mortgage business is how to prevent housing bubbles. Government subsidies in the form of below market interest rates, and high mortgage to value artificially inflates housing prices. Consider, GSEs now hold more than 50% of the distressed inventory. Government subsidized capitalism is poison to a natural economic system. The industry now needs a major dose of methadone as a result of the massive amount of housing stimulus we have become reliant and over the past 20 years.
