Slate.com's article about the American "Housing Market Catastrophe-in-the-Making" helps to shine a wider light on multiple economic sectors and businesses that are reporting substantial negative impacts as a result of the housing dive.

The depth and breadth of the housing crash is likely more profound than anyone first believed.
