ABSTRACT
The article provides an outlook for the economy of the United States. Peter Thiel, owner of hedge fund Clarium Capital Management, believes that the real estate market will fall and will trigger an economic decline in the country. It could also lead to recession since housing has been the economy's most robust sector. To prove his claim, Thiel cites the example of the flattening of the British housing bubble.
