It's weird because here in Georgia we have what's going to be the most expensive electricity ever generated in the United States at the boondoggle called Plant, Vogel. And at the same time we have some of the cheapest power in the United States coming from solar. I saw a profile recently in The Wall Street Journal that Georgia is kind of unique that there is no mandate for salt where no subsidies for solar no incentives for soul work. And in fact, so where is being installed here? One of the fastest rates in the world because it's the cheapest source of power that exists now solar paired with batteries.

"WSB Atlanta's news and talk Here's West and WSB money matters. Good morning. Welcome back to money matters here. It is Sunday morning, and we've been talking housing housing in every way, shape or form here today, the housing market What we can be thinking about over the next several years. I think the takeaway is that it's pretty tough to see housing prices go down a lot over the next couple of years. If you want to protect yourself against Inflation. And you're worried about a product inflating owned the companies that make the products that inflate as an example. If you're worried about Hamburg inflation, what do you do You buy a hamburger company or you own that. If you want to worry about oil prices going up, you buy your own oil companies or oil oil producers, so that is and there's very few things that we can find in the world that are better hedge against inflation. When it comes to stock the same thing with housing. If you worry about housing prices go up in my opinion, now is not the time to be selling a house to go rent to wait for a housing correction. Just too many fundamental tail winds that are pointing towards higher housing prices. I do not think we're going to see another housing surge in prices like we just saw were at a 14% year over year. Rise in housing prices around the United States in aggregate. That means some places are in the 7 to 10 range in some places are in the 20 to 30% range, all within a year. It's the most. That's the biggest jump. For the housing industry we've seen since Case Shiller has been keeping track who's since the 19 eighties. The biggest outsized move we've ever seen. I don't think you're going to see it again. I think we see We get back to what we would we would think of as a more normal housing environment, which is a nice hedge against inflation. On average, over time, housing grows around 2% above inflations of inflation's to not not strange to see housing rise at about four Total. Inflation at one non incumbency housing rights total of three And where we are in this world today, Inflation is probably going to be a little higher than we've seen over the past decade because there's so much money sloshing around the economic system. But take the big macro trends of of under supply of homes. Five million to six million homes shy of where we should be for equilibrium. We have worked from home. We will now go from 7% that went to 70% now back to trying to find that's during Covid in the lockdowns. Now we're gonna get back to a more moving forward. Here's what most companies are going to do and most companies Are going to be some sort of hybrid. I think the Google model is a really good way to think of around what most companies are going to do. And this is in most industries, The 2016 2020% totally in the office. 20% totally from home. The other 60% of America will probably be on some sort of hybrid schedule where you're in the office 2 to 3 days a week and you work from home.

We'll check scores with Zach in just a little bit right now we're gonna hear from Georgia's head coach. Tom Creen, who's in the Bulldogs coach's locker room, coach. Certainly tough afternoon for the dogs today. Can you tell us a little bit about how fucked starts with me? I don't know.

And we established that we were going to let him So there's no one player that overcame that today. There's no one player. It led the way There's something probably think they did, but it doesn't work that way. So when you don't have anybody that understands the level off fight And can rally it then that falls on the coach, And so there is there is no doubt about it. I'm sitting here by myself on that, because, um, there was nobody Nobody on this team. Had a fighting spirit of what we're up against with this, and unfortunately that shouldn't be happening. 24 games in especially with some of the winds we've had that have been built on toughness and speed and Aggressiveness and Connectivity. And somewhere along the way, I failed it so That's what I see. Look, Cochise give some credit here. South Carolina's defense, I thought did a good job of keeping they obviously they did a good job of keeping severe From doing what he likes to do. Getting to the room. Yeah, I saw it differently, but that's okay. I mean, it's fine. It's I see something different. What did you say? Just I see a team that didn't understand that The ball needs to move consistently against that defense. OK, and then get back to the middle of the floor.

It was quiet from the from the two minute mark on and we've got that We've had some of those moments this year and we've also had losses inside of those moments. So where are we? I told the team I put my blinders on when these kind of things happen and Figure out what it wasn't preparation. It wasn't practiced. It wasn't over practice. It wasn't under practice. It wasn't any of that. It wasn't any of that. They just somewhere along the way. We didn't understand the level of fight. We had to bring into the game, Coach. Let me ask you this when that occurs on the floor early in the game. Does that have to come from you? Or does that have to come from somebody on the well? Evidently it has to come from me because it didn't come from anybody on the floor today, so Yeah. And in the right world that comes from teammates. Yes, it does. But it didn't. So that falls on me.
