  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. What this film seems to miss is that governments act they way they do because they are effectively little more than extensions of corporate boardrooms. The same companies that gunslinger Regan gushed about are amongst  the ones that have lined the pockets of corrupt politicians and lobbyists to make this massive transfer of wealth happen.

    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?

  4. Edward Deming said training your staff is one of the things that shows up on the expense column in accounting.  Its a clear cost, paying the courses, paying the time off work, etc.. but the benefit; there is no way to measure it or to know.  So accounting puts that at zero(by not recording it).

    Exactly. And that's why, in my opinion, accountants should not be running Companies.

  5. 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!

  6. Thanks, finally got to 500 posts  :D , Yes you are correct, I also aquired a small wine drinking problem, when ever i posted / read HPC, so i also broke the  mould,for this.  :P

    Anyway life could not be beter, semi retired for job (no overtime required +30 hrs per week at previous mortgage levels,  and self built a study and 5th bedroom with a kitchen extension (19ft x 26ft) approved(need to save for materials (labour free) and a play room 15x14 approved also (but will have to justify with OH) so plenty to do but saddly lacking energy levels as when i was younger.

    How about you?


    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'm an owner occupier too, but still hope for HPC as I want to move. This site still remains an important pit stop.

    The HPC is happening here in NI as we speak and it looks like it's gonna be a doozie. . .

    I want an HPC so my kids can afford a half decent place at a reasonably early age!

  7. Thanks Noodle, looks good so far.... it really is fast!

    I have always been here, reading EVERY POST, but after buying a property, I would feel somewhat bragging for buying a property, and was not comfortable posting as a owner - occupier

    I visit a few sites each day- Every day, and this is site is a must!

    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.
