Who Is The Best Hpc Poster? List your top 3, with reasons

So, here are the three posters I reckon have the most interesting views and information:
1. Realistbear - he has a thesis on deflation, regularly backed up with sources.
2. Tamara de Lempicka - thesis on the investment markets.
3. Hotairmail - smaller scale thesis on the investment markets.
Currently I don't find anyone on here who has good knowledge of the UK housing/debt market. From past posters, I'd say Honest EA was the most informative of the lot, but he's been gone a long time.
Overall my favourite was Tom on *********************, who I think is involved in propertybee.

Also Bogbrush and jonnystorm for having the balls to tell it like it is on public sector non-poductivity.
Errol for understanding the inflationist world we live in.
Noodle also I consider a wise poster.

The only liberty an inferior man really cherishes is the liberty to quit work, stretch out in the sun, and scratch himself.

1. IRs to go nowhere, SLS to be extended or continue in another guise.
2. New record low housing transactions
3. Nominal house prices between 0 - 5% down. Real prices, God knows!

1. Injin - For planting many a seed of interesting thought in my mind.
2. Scepticus - Whether I agree or disagree with his POV, he brings an interesting angle of debate to the forum.
3. Alan B'Stad - For sharing much banking knowledge and offering many counter arguments.
[Other honourable mentions: Freetrader - For sharing many a thought on the bond markets. Hotairmail for many thoughtful posts and for planting a good few seeds of thought too. Scorpio/Serpico (I forget exact nickname) - For sharing the thoughts and experience, from a perspective of having seen it all before (IIRC, his sight was failing with age and he doesn't post any more - hope he is well).]
TBH, there are loads of posters who I enjoy reading and debating with. It's hard to list just 3 (or even 6 ).

Just as you cannot spend your way out of recession, you cannot, in a global economy, simply spend your way through recovery either.

So, housing affordability is better than it has ever been, but no-one can take advantage of this because they can't afford the houses. I see.
