The Daily Show Looks at the Treasury Secretary's Unsold House

Higher-priced homes are having trouble getting themselves sold in this area. But it's a nationwide phenomenon. FDIC head Sheila Bair can't sell her house, nor can Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner; both are now "accidental landlords."

John Oliver takes a look at Tim Geithner's house, and interviews economist Robert Shiller, of Case Shiller Index Fame, on the issue. Funny, unfortunate, and enlightening simultaneously.
