QE, source of asset-price inflation and rising inequality

RT: QE, the largest transfer of wealth in history

QE has inflated the prices of property and other assets and in other ways enabled the wealthy to steal the wages of workers, in addition to causing havoc in 'emerging markets'. But what's do be done now? If the Fed, BoE and ECB unwind QE, sell govt securities into the market and raise IRs that's a lot of taxation to be raised to pay off the interest on the national debt. The Fed, e.g., is planning to do these things, with fed funds rate going up to 3.5%. Eventually US taxpayers would be paying bondholders over $800bn a year in interest alone. Is Japan on the right track? It creates lots of money for the BoJ to buy back the govt debt and to pay the interest to the govt - an interest-free debt rolled over each year - effectively a debt cancellation.

Warning of the impending BTL bubble burst

Telegraph: The buy-to-let stampede begins:

Buy-to-let investors now face tougher conditions. A weakening housing market, tough new legislation and the tightening of affordability checks by lenders are but a few problems causing landlords to run for the hills

Property Market In State of Lethargy

BBC: Estate agents have lowest stock of homes for 40 years

Both titles are from the BBC, the Lethargy one being from their home page. I guess that with current prices estate agents only need to sell one or two houses a month to make a nice living.

Start of a panic....??

Sun: HOUSE PRICE PLUNGE Fresh fears of housing market collapse as new data suggests property prices are falling

NEW signs of the housing market slipping are expected this week when one of the best lead indicators of house price movement is released.

Tightening comes in many forms

Pound Sterling Live: British pound up on us dollar

Carney takes the option of micro-managing the banks over decisions presumably they are running calculations on themselves to avoid raising rates. Tacitly stating that without his guidance the banks would still inevitably run themselves into serious defaults (which is probably true). From where are these counter cyclical reserves sourced? Could they be sourced from the addional liquidity that Carney has himself printed into existence? There is about 200 billion of unsecured debt held by uk households. So tapering, would be when QE went into reverse i.e. the printed money would head back to the central bank and the +x,-x cancel out. i continue in a comment..

Guardian: Shard apartments unsold 5 years on

its difficult to know what to believe is the real state of the market,but this has certainly been kept quiet..all starts in central london and spreads out historically.

From the same rag that's been promising rising rents...

Torygraph: Finally, some good news for those not on the property ladder: it's getting cheaper to rent

Funny there's no mention in the article of the pending rent hikes due to tax changes. Maybe they're too embarrassed to mention the duff theory any more...

Any minute now, rents will rise, promise!!

Torygraph: Attacks on landlords end up hurting tenants, says ex-Bank of England policymaker

Just goes to show the intellectual bankruptcy of neoclassical economics. Leases being signed now are subject to much higher taxation for the duration - why are landlords not passing this on as threatened, and are instead accepting lower rents than before? And why are rents lower in the US, where the average ad velorem property tax bill paid by the landlord is $6000 vs £0 in the UK?
