About HowMuch!

  1. Carillion in Crisis

    which company will be next in line for a bail out?
  2. whole road in Norwich... “The properties are very recently built and represent a good long term investment, especially with interest rates as they are at the moment. http://www.eveningnews24.co.uk/norfolk-property/chance-to-buy-entire-road-of-houses-in-norwich-1-5353162
  3. What/who will collapse first in 2018

    Is the "boomer generation" the reason they do well?
  4. never are quick these things, but most likely there is plenty of watering down to do. not heard anything much about court case regarding agent fees either.
  5. The return of the 120% mortgage

    I think the clue is "its not their money"
  6. Aussie flu

    got to day 4 or feeling so bad I have not left the house, most of the time in bed or on the sofa. reading up says is can be upto 1-2 weeks, cough can last 20days. Think i'll start the year in Feb at this rate.

    of course we only hear of the winners(in the main). If I was to be investing in the "next big thing" then I would have a lot of losers in the basket a long side the odd winner. if crypto had been one of those it likely pays for all the losers, but today?

    Yeah I am a manual worker also, at work the younger ones where I work are now a mix of property is the only way to those who are checking crypto prices on there phone several times a day. Quite a few have trading apps(ok so nothing more that gambling).

    take it your talking bitcoin, so a big 6 figure tax bill(or how do you avoid it?) the house deposit discussion came up at work when some one said they didn't have any money spare to invest, but did have a small lump of cash for a house deposit in years to come.

    Anyone remember friends reunited? I quite like the current system, its only shit now because of the cost of housing relative to wages. if housing cost came in at 25% of single average wage then everything else would be fairly simple. you could build up a 3-12 reserve quickly in your first job, get a deposit together in a couple of year, start to fund a pension etc. pretty much everything else is tinkering around the edges?
  11. Ignoring crypto

    most people I know that have been in and out of crypto through work cashed out as soon as they double/trebled etc. Simply because they wanted to buy something with there "winnings".

    early investor are always going to be the head line winners... a very small number of individuals. best advice seemed to be put 1% of your wealth in, if it comes to be as big as the ramp then great if not you still have 99% left.(not sure if its as good today though). most of the participants now seem to be speculators rather than wanting to use it as currency, turning it back to fiat seems to defeat the object, however the early investors that have cashed out have done well. to me it appears the mother of all pyramid schemes(aside from the current accepted system)
  13. Aussie flu

    had been feeling dizzy for a week, unwell last few days, fever last night and today spent in bed. If you have got a decent immune system its nothing more than a bad cold. If you are old, have underlying health issues then I can imagine its much worse.
  14. The Bubbly Bitcoin Thread -- Merged Threads

    And with this I start to draw parallels with my line manager at work telling me how they are not paid much either because "their house made more than they last year" The mad gains in both incidences(agree bit coin has done immensely better), does make you wonder why its different?
  15. As in any directly government charity, all the money has to be spent. Housing association, that the other half worked for(really stupid leave looking back as they were the best payers/terms as employers you could wish for given the effort required). Was a surplus of funds each year so the staff go one off bonus, not linked to performance, it was just left over sloshing around. Lowest workers got £500, higher up it will have been 000s. They used to run competitions for tenants, incentives to pay rent on time. Prizes usually cash. The funny thing is so it was not seen a discrimination those who had the rent paid by housing benefit(direct payments) got put in the draw also, being that most of the tenants where paid like that invariably if was more often or not someone on HB that got the prize.
