This forum is just about all there is for discussion of house prices in the UK. Compared to the US, the lack of decent blogs is worrying.

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.

Traktion - Top poster.

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.

Remember that buying a house is a highly leveraged investment and can result in losses that exceed your initial deposit. Buying a house may not be suitable for everyone, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.

Bloo Loo - concise, to the point and cuts through the crap, explains stuff in terms I can understand.

Ken_Ichikawa - virtually every post contains some completely out there interesting anecdotal story

Taxabuseroftheweek - Just because I absolutely love his rants about boomers and pensions etc.

That's a tough one - so many good posters here.

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 :lol:).

Edited by Traktion, 08 August 2010 - 09:49 PM.

Hayek: Denationalisation of Money - Competing, alternative currencies and breaking the money monopolies.
Bitcoin - Free market, distributed, open source, e-currency.
Against Intellectual Monopoly - Stop the rent seeking through legal monopoly.
Freedomain Radio - Philosophical commentary and debate.
Khan Academy - Free market education, funded by voluntary donations.
Community Land Licencing - A distributed, non-state, alternative to land value taxation.

Just 3? :(

I guess the top three I learn from:

ParticleMan (by learn, I mean decypher)

Top three otherwise:

Bloo Loo - Very funny
Realist Bear - The original Bear
Chumpusrex - The kind of guy you'd want on your team at the pub quiz

Edit, Damn... forgot Bubb and cgnao hotairmail. They have to be my top three GEI instead :lol:

Edit 2: In the old school category: Charlie the Tramp and Bruce Banner

Edit 3: SBN cracks me up too.

Edit: 4 Oh, And Tamara's good too when I can follow him/her.

Edit 5: Meh.. feck it... just everyone

And I tell you we have learned from past mistakes.
Just as you cannot spend your way out of recession, you cannot, in a global economy, simply spend your way through recovery either.

(Gordon Brown, Labour Party Annual Conference, 29 September 1997)

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.
