Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A point of order: What is destroying the American middle class is that the income it used to use to buy stuff - including homes - isn't there any more. Give it back a reasonable income, and it will be able to obtain financing, with or without a secondary market for mortgages. That's the nice thing about having a central bank: It removes the loanable funds constraint, making the credit market a completely demand-side beast.
