This post includes some recent zombie money, zombie legislation, zombie guns, and more…

HousingWire: “The cure to zombie foreclosures” by Brena Swanson:

“Zombie properties will make it harder for Cook County to recover fully from the housing crisis, especially in the neighborhoods where they are concentrated,” Spencer Cowan, vice president of Woodstock Institute, said.

“Zombies introduce an element of uncertainty that poses barriers to returning homes to productive use or finding creative ways to deal with blighted properties,” Cowan said.

AOL: “Are your savings dying in a zombie account?” by lovemoney.com:
