Housing Ponzi Scheme - Crime of the Century

It is the crime of the century the current state of the housing bubble and the politicians, policymakers and bankers that are all responsible for this mess that we are now all supposedly in together! Careful, responsible savers were never part of this greedy deck of cards which is now about to fall around our ears. Cameron understands that we cannot expect to create wealth out of thin air (housing inflation)disguised as wealth and be a credible world economy. The only problem now is nonone wants to look at this very serious problem in the hope it will go away. Printing money will not work. The buffoon that was Brown played a large hand in this, where is he now to pick up the pieces. Interestingly, Blair is still building his property empire. Unbelievable!!!!!!

Probable a bit too contentious for these media types but you never know!!!!!

I've also sent my opinion to them..ie buyers are not there to take on vendors debts or the mortage THEY decided to take on before things went belly up and to get real.

I've been filtered out of contributing to any R4 programmes

They log your details and if your opinions don't fit the accepted Keynesian norms, they wont invaite you to participate in their programmes.

Quick roundup of the emails that they have been receiving: lots of renters complaining about the insecurity.

Renters have had it a bit shitty for the last decade with regards to security of tenure. My prediction for the next decade is that the shoe is going to be well and truly on the other foot. Amateur BTL landlords are going to be worried over the insecurity of having a tenant, decent or otherwise.

Long overdue too.

American idiot lists reasons for drop in home ownership... prices are not on his list <_<

Yes, he said it was 'supply & demand' (for houses) ...... no mention of supply & demand for credit.

Interesting mix of experts: the girl is a clear bear, highlighting the downsides of MEWing and excessive debt. The american guy is a clear bull - houses are "wealth accumulation".
