China property market the one to watch (for now)
You may see some scary sights this Halloween night, but none as terrifying as these global economic statistics. M&G's Bond Vigilantes have put together five scary charts guaranteed to make your hair stand on end, which they have labelled 'not for the fainthearted'.
The Fat Man Tries Again
Property tycoons Fergus and Judith Wilson may be selling off their 1,000-home empire but they cannot help dipping into the market. Mr Wilson â who reportedly was buying a house a day in the early 2000s â admitted he is still buying houses and bought one as recently as last week. Mr Wilson â who lives in Boughton Monchelsea, Maidstone â was speaking after he was spotted walking around the Kent 2020 Start Up Live exhibition at Kent Showground, Detling, last week. He said: âMy wife and I have been involved in lots of business clubs. They are basically networking clubs. âIt will cost Â£50 for the lunch and the speakers and if they turn up and donât get Â£50 of business out of it, then they shouldnât be coming.â
Renter votes not required, thank you
'David Cameron has said it would be "lovely" for interest rates to remain at historic lows "forever" because it will allow families "to buy the homes they can afford". The Prime Minister said that Britainâs low interest rates are "good news" because it has made owning a home more affordable. He agreed with a voter who told him that a rise in rates could make life "very hard" for homeowners.' This is a taste of what we can look forward to for the next general election.
