  1. It stopped any new banks from forming which is bad for me. They could have taken on deposits and had a good Tier 1 for lending and undercut the market.
  2. Is there a problem with search, it seems to sometimes give results but other times nothing. No results found for 'statistics'. http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?app=core&module=search&section=search&do=quick_search&search_app=core&fromsearch=1Your'>http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?app=core&module=search&section=search&do=quick_search&search_app=core&fromsearch=1Your search for the term statistics returned 1000 results http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?app=core&module=search&section=search&do=q
  3. Sterling ERI/Trade Weighted Broad or Narrow would do for a comparison, could use the US trade weighted index to narrow down a comparison. Otherwise it's just exchange rates which mean very little on their own.
  4. UK used cars were almost too cheap before the crash, insane bargins which are now all gone.
  5. APF started with Treasury Bill funding for Commerical Paper in Jan 2009 then the next month added Gilts and was Reserve or QE funded ; until now when Gilts were dropped and CP moved back to Treasury Bills.
  6. Corporate Bond Secondary Market Scheme For as long as the abnormal conditions in corporate credit markets persist
  7. Asking or considering marital status is considered to be discrimination as should mortage status because it's irrelevant to the applicant. Ageism is fairly new but even so I've left my age off CVs and HR never question it or even mention it because they are aware of the law. Same should apply to mortgage or renting, asking about it in an interview shows discrimination unrelated to the job.
  8. Is this 200 Billion just Central bank reserve funded, or is the corporate bond selling and buying with Treasury Bills included in the total ?. If they make people charge less for lending to dodgy corporates what makes them think they know any better than everyone else.
  9. I just thought the bit "In any case, even if they print up the depo insurance it gets deposited in a remaining bank. Now the liabilities of the remaining banks are higher but their ASSETS have not increased to match" was wrong, because if a bank fails and they have to pay out then a mortage for instance would be paid from your retail deposit and the cash left over is yours to keep.
  10. That also applies to deposit protection, you get your cash minus your debts so you instantly deleverage.
  11. The proportion of first-time buyers in the UK aged under 25 fell from 30 per cent in 1990 to 18 per cent in 2008, reaching a low of 16 per cent in 2003. (Figure 10.16) Between 1988 and 2008 deposits for first-time buyers in the UK tended to rise each year, increasing from 12 per cent to 22 per cent of purchase price, and with a peak of 23 per cent in 2003. (Figure 10.20) Between 1971 and 2007 there was a 38 per cent increase in the number of dwellings in Great Britain, from 18.8 million to 25.9 million, exceeding the increase in the number of households. (Figure 10.1) Between 1997/98 and 20
