Given the **uptick in the financial markets ^{[2]}** this week, the

**positive sign**that many seem to be taking from it, and the fact that it involves endless digits of circular numeric calculations, yesterday was

^{[3]}**Friday the 13th**(there are 4 in 2009), so we should:

^{[4]}*Do The Math* After all, its 3.14…

National Pi Day: **Congress took time from it’s busy bailout schedule ^{[5]}** designating today as National

**Pi Day**.

^{[6]}Here is, quite appropriately, an attempt at a monetized version ^{[7]}. Some even argue that **Pi is better than sex ^{[8]}**, but I suspect that is difficult to calculate. Wikipedia has an

**amazing presentation on Pi**for those who are curious. Here’s the

^{[9]}**million digit version**.

^{[10]}*Per Wikipedia*

Ï€ is defined as the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter

Ï€ can be also defined as the ratio of a circle’s area to the area of a square whose side is equal to the radius

In real estate economics (Matrix-wise), a Pi-type formula might be expressed as:

property value = ((consumer confidence + (1-their employment outlook/their employment outlook)) + (personal drive for home ownership x irrational behavior) + ((total distance from schools+ total distance from employment)/(White Castle projected visits/Whole Foods projected visits))/(mortgage rates x cash on hand x affordability ratios x size of down payment)/(mood of bank underwriter – name on stadium factor + amount borrowed from US Treasury))

*In other words, its complicated.*

Perhaps we can turn to** Albert Einstein ^{[11]}** because its his birthday today and simply use

**E = mc squared**and apply it to housing values to figure this all out.

^{[12]}*Ok, back to reality.*
