Quicken Loans Chairman and Founder Dan Gilbert was a guest host today on CNBC’s Squawk Box.

It’s was an interesting two-hour segment, featuring discussions on the dreaded Fiscal Cliff (and how it could affect mortgage rates – can you say “go up?”), Dodd Frank legislation to regulate the mortgage industry, and the housing industry in general.

Of course, Gilbert also talked about Detroit, a place he’s pretty passionate about, in case you haven’t noticed. Lots of revitilization is underway in Detroit, and Quicken Loans is right at the heart of the growth. As a kid who grew up in the city and attended high school right smack in downtown, any news about Detroit’s growth is good news to me.

Here are three clips of Gilbert’s appearance on the show. Hope you enjoy them. Please let us know what you think. Do you agree with Dan?
