House Prices: Pulling us into a recession?

BBC 2 Live phone in today at 1pm (show starts at 12pm).

No, Jeremy. Lower house prices are good news and should be embraced. If we spend less of our disposable monthly income on housing costs we will have more to spend on actual goods and services. This will stimulate consumer demand and lead to real job creation and genuine productivity. Lower house prices will lead the way in our economic recovery and should be seen positively, just as lower food and fuel prices are viewed.

Unfortunately I will not be in a position to call in but if we can get that message across loud and clear on the BBC (-3.6%? What -3.6%?) then it will be a good afternoons work.

I'm getting that "Radio 5 Live" feeling again. Timebandit, are you around? ;):D

Thanks. Unfortunatelly I won't be able to phone them, but if someone gets trough, I think we should always say

"housing costs", and not "house prices". It is cost of living, not an "investment".

Cheers,

And someone please do mention Germany! There low property costs (for both households and businesses) reduce their housing costs and production costs, increasing both their standards of living and their international competitiveness.

This is what needs rammed home to people:

http://blogs.thisismoney.co.uk/2010/04/brown-i-will-not-allow-house-prices-to-get-out-of-control.html

Gordon Brown said: ‘I will not allow house prices to get out of control and put at risk the sustainability of the recovery.’

He is the reason we are in this mess right now and it needs to be drilled into people who are considering already voting his party back in (remember Millipede Jr and Ed Balls were advisors to Brown so are equally culpable).

I've just sent them this email:

Jeremy, it is "housing costs", not "house prices". It is the main cost of living. Lower is good, higher is bad.

And for the economy: Think of Germany. There low property costs (for both households and businesses) reduce their housing costs and production costs, increasing both their standards of living and their international competitiveness.

Lower costs are a good thing.

Simple really. Only people with vested interest have difficulties seeing this. Including all home owners.

thanks for the info.

wonder if they will have any estate agents phoning in ?

Let's hope for some bearish calls.

More than 500 people in this forum today but only around 60 in this thread. Where is everybody? The Jeremy Vine show is one of the most important "Public Opinion Former" in Britain! people, this is important! Really very important!

Perhaps we should PM other forum members about this thread? (If we post about this in other threads they get bumped above this one.)

The Jerries also have Dedicated, Specialised Business Loan Banks - not the type of bankster (corrupt dregs of the earth) we have to put up with here in the UK!

FWIW, I sent this:

e: house prices.

Surely the less money a household has to spend out on a mortgage, the more they have to spend elsewhere, thus boosting the wider economy.

Most people just want a place to call home that is affordable. Anyone under the age of 40 hasn't much hope of that unless the cost of buying a house becomes more in line with historical levels.

Its not about "getting the banks lending again". The banks ARE lending. To people who can afford to pay back the debt. The whole bubble grew due to lax lending; no checks being made on earnings and people lying to get their loans, come what may. People saying we need to go back to that are very very wrong.

So in summary, prices must drop and lending must be tightened up to ensure a bubble like this cannot happen again.

Sure, that helps as well. And much better infrastructure, education/labour force skills (technical colleges), etc. Of course. But property costs are one of the most important costs of living and production.

Can't stand Vine.

Switched on now (busy ealier) and one of the Milibands is on.

Needless to say all the emails and calls I heard are glowing.

I've e-mailed. But I doubt they'll read many of our e-mails out.

They don't want the sheeple to hear the truth about high housing costs! Expect this to be VI propaganda of the highest order. <_<

Me too and me too, but I adopt the approach that somebody will read our emails and that will have a depressing effect on them.

I am sure there will be *some* bearish comments.
