Report Let the fun begin... in House prices and the economy Posted July 2, 2021 Boom and bust is policy ,it happens by design not by accident . This bust is long overdue, all that's missing has been a convenient scapegoat and Covid is perfect for this purpose. Between Covid and those nasty people in the EU not playing ball any more a lot of the blame that should of headed towards bankers and politicians will be re-directed in that direction. During a boom (almost) everyone makes a little , during a bust a few vultures at the top strip the carcass bare . Won't be long til they issue ration cards and we're all hanging out the washing on the Siegfried line.
