This recession is different

One of the usual engines of recovery - residential investment - isn't contributing this time.
The reason RI is moving sideways is because of the huge overhang of existing housing units (both single family and rental units). And this is one of the key reasons I think the current recovery will be sluggish and choppy - and that unemployment will stay elevated for some time.
