  1. HPI just won't lie down and die.....DUBAI - Global real estate markets, particularly in the West, were hit hard by the financial crisis as banks slashed the amounts they loaned, sending property prices tumbling in many markets.Two years on and property prices have begun to recover, but still have some way to go to get back to their pre-2008 highs. However, the subdued prices present attractive opportunities for real estate investors.Here’s a look at ten cities worth investing in as their real estate market and wider economy bounce back. http://business.maktoob.com/20090000515056/Top_global_property_investment_hotspots/Article.htm?utm_campaign=Day-Newsletter&utm_medium=Main-News3&utm_source=Day-Newsletter&utm_content=
  2. When Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke admits to seeing an "unusually uncertain" economy ahead, it's pretty terrifying to imagine what he's really thinking. What John Williams envisions – and he's by no means looking to the far horizon – is a systemic collapse, a hyperinflationary great depression and the cessation of normal commerce. Despite that bleak outlook, however, when the economist and editor of ShadowStats.com sat down for this exclusive Energy Report interview, he also had some good news. rest at: http://www.lewrockwell.com/spl2/hyperinflationary-great-depression.html
  3. "Journalists" don't really matter these days. They (most of them) sold out long ago and now everybody sees it.
  4. The video at the end of that piece was very telling. Construction really can be that bad in Canada. It brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "Model Home" !
  5. Let's hope so. The money involved is obscene for what's produced. Look at our showing in the World Cup.....
  6. A little reminder that we've been there before from Spitting Image....
  7. I wonder if the bankstas will end up owning everything without having paid a (real) penny?
  8. How is this the fault of the "boomers"? What are "boomers"?
  9. True. I wasn't expecting an exact depiction of the truth when I saw Reagan's mug being portrayed in a favorable light. My gut feeling is this all started with him and Thatch, somehow. Still, a step in the right direction?
  10. Looks like an interesting film coming up..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wty7974IKg
  11. Me too. If I was going to p1ss any Country off, I wouldn't choose Ireland.
  12. Exactly. And that's why, in my opinion, accountants should not be running Companies.
  13. You know, going on about people being "unproductive" after 50 is a load of sh1te really. In the company I work for, we're desperately trying to hang on to the "old guys" because they're the only people that really know how to do the job! We're about to suffer a real skills shortage, which will do us a lot of harm. They were well trained and are now super experienced.... whereas we that followed were rushed through to save money. Ferkin accountants have a lot to answer for!
  14. I'd like to think you were right, but we're talking about "being British" here! We don't do revolution.....
  15. Life sounds good for you! Three daughters will be a source of anxiety, I'm sure, but still, lucky you! Your house sounds nice.... that's a big extension!.... and you'll only lose money if you decide to sell in the near/ medium future.... I want an HPC so my kids can afford a half decent place at a reasonably early age!
  16. When the Main Stream Media start reporting like this, it's only a matter of time.... (as it always was, to be honest).
  17. Thanks Noodle, looks good so far.... it really is fast! Tuggy, I am an "owner" too..... I bought 2 years ago, knowing that I risked "losing" a lot of money. However, family comes first, and it needed to be done for all sorts of reasons. I have never felt uncomfortable posting here just because I am buying. I still fervently believe that house prices are way too high and fully support an HPC! I think there are plenty of "owners" here that feel the same way.
  18. It used to be, not so long ago, that you were "scrapped" at 40......
  19. (Firefox won't let me edit... harumph!).... just wanted to add, nice post, btw.
