  1. Basically we are discussing the labor-leisure budget constraint With a bit of capital to live of, for many there is totally no point in doing any work at all. Having said that I do think many retire with too little. I know many 50 year olds with Euro 1m net assets worth (including housing). If they do reach 80, they will be in trouble.

  9. I disagree. Almost everywhere it is the same story, so the dollar relative towards other currencies will remain ok. The only good news that may come out of food inflation is if wages remain the same, people have less money to spend on housing.
  10. I do think it is only temporarily and worse so do the bankers, so sadly no hikes in interest rates.
  11. I am reading that in Holland property prices keep going up and that in the South of Italy property is being sold for 1 Euro. Is France somewhere in the middle?

  19. Honestly when I read these things, I really wonder how quickly some people made that money in the first place? No way any normal person would put this much in his/her luggage not being able to answer a simple question as 'where does the money come from?'
